How would I disassemble a cake for service? Should I put wax or parchment paper on both sides of the board to avoid the buttercream from the cake underneath one tier from sticking to the board of the cake on top? I am doing my first wedding cake this saturday and they are needing my to serve and it's making me very nervous!
You can use a circle of waxed paper on the bottom of the board that touches the icing.. covering the top surface isn't necessary because the cake doesn't stick or damage anything since it's not being removed from the board, it will be sliced on the board. Also, you don't want it to slide around.
The one *and only!* time I use wax paper the tiers slip apart durring delivery I totally do NOT suggest using it.
Parchment paper might be ok. OR use toasted cake or graham cracker crumbs; (dry) powdered sugar; ground nuts or toasted coconut - **IF one is SURE** there is no one allergies to either.
