I HAVE MADE MANY 2 TIERED CAKES ...GREAT THESE I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH ...........WHEN I COME TO MAKE A 3 OR MOR TIERS .I FIND THAT THE CAKE TENDS TO LEAN SLIGHTLY BACK.EVEN THOUGH I TAKE PAINS TO LEVEL WITH A SPIRIT LEVEL EACH CAKE.........WHAT AM I DOING WRONG.I DO PUT DOWELS INTO EACH TIER ...CAN ANY ONE ANSWER THIS .ITS DRIVING ME MAD .
Is your work surface/turntable level?
AHHH..I THINK SO .....BUT ITS SOMETHING I DIDNT THINK OF .THANKS IL CHECK X
You should check out Sharon Zambito's Successful Stacking video. Until I viewed it, I had similar issues. I am now able to beautifully stack cakes!
Cut one dowel to the height of your cake (try to find the highest point). Cut all the other dowels exactly the same length as this first dowel. Use a cutting jig (mitre box) to help you do this. Cut them clean and square without any chips on the ends. This takes practise.
Do this for each tier that has another tier(s) on top of it. Since the tiers sit on the dowels, they will sit level.
