Does anybody have a recipe for durable carrot cake that can be stacked? I need to make a 2 tier but my scratch recipe is so soft I'm afraid the 10" won't support the 8". I was hoping to find a box mix that I could doctor, but no carrot cake mixes in our area. ANY help would be greatly appreciated. I need the cake in 2 weeks. YIKES! THANKS BUNCHES!!!!!

It doesn't really matter how soft your cake is, the cake shouldn't be supporting anything. It's the support system, not that cake, that supports the upper tiers. In theory, even an angel food cake can be stacked since the cake doesn't bear the weight of what's above it, the support system does.

Use your recipe but make sure you use plenty of bubble tea straws or dowels in the bottom cake to support the top cake. It will be fine thumbs_up.gif

Do you know how to stack cakes? You can also Google for videos.

Are you worried about stacking or the cake holding up under fondant?

thanks everybody! I've stacked lots of cakes, but never carrot. I'll use the recipe at cake central and let you know how it turns out!
