I've done a few topsy turvy cakes before without any problem. I usually use the method where you cut a level "hole" in the top to place the next tier on. Well, I have a cake for next weekend where the customer insisted on 4 very large tiers, but only wanted 50 servings. So, I'm doing 2 dummy tiers and 2 cake tiers. I'm looking for suggestions on how best to stack these to prevent any movement (I have to transport it assembled). Tiers will be 20" dummy, 16" dummy, 12" cake, 8" cake.
I am cutting the styrofoam from round to slanted myself as well. So......thoughts?? Should I carve a "hole" into the styromfoam just as I would usually with cake, or try a different method?
Thanks so much!
