Has anyone ever used the metal cake stackers for muli tiered cakes? They are very expensive and was wondering if anyone else thought they were worth the cost. I was looking at the pro series 14 on cackstackers.com
Personally I'd say no, but I don't like to have equipment floating around that I have to get back from clients, etc. If you learn to build a cake the right way it's unlikely that it will flip over unless you really try. And if you did trip and went headfirst with a cake it isn't going to matter what kind of stacking system it has, it's going down!
What technique do you use for stacking cakes? I'm still learning and trying to develop my skills. So I would appreciate your input.
There are a few different things you can use. People will swear by one method or another, so it's really personal preference. I use the basic wooden dowels but I use tuff board cake boards, not cardboard rounds. Some people swear by bubble tea straws. I bet if you do a search for how to stack a cake you'll find videos on YouTube and lots of posts about things that people like to use.
