So Im sorta a beginner at making cakes with fondants. I was going the cheap route and buying box cake batter and I found that it isn't strong enough for fondant and multiple cakes on top.
I have a birthday celebration for my boyfriend in November and im making him a 3 tiered cake and
I want to avoid the caving possibility. Plus I need some tasty recipes. Im just not sure which types of cakes are strong enough for what I planned on doing.
Thank for the help :)
Your support system provides the, well, support for a tiered cake. The cake itself doesn't support any weight at all, other than the icing.
Sorry if that was a dumb question. Still learning on my own.
but thanks though...
Im looking for recopies for strong cakes. Specifically.
Consider making pound cakes.
Thank you :)
Mimi's suggestion is a good one, but there's no reason you can't stack box cakes--or jello--if you have the right support system--as Leah said. Any cake will crush the one under it if the support isn't done properly.
Each cake tier needs to be on a cake board of the same size and then follow these instructions:
Im pretty new at this, im kind of teaching myself as I go. I knew about the tier placement and everything, but i guess i didnt completely understand how it worked. lol I didnt realize there needs to be a cake board which makes sense now. I honestly thought the cakes just supported themselves. But this is definitely good to know. Thank you :)
