Does any one have a tutorial on how to stack tiered cakes using both the boba straws and cake circles in between each tier?
Edna does one on designmeacake.com
I love Edna!
I had checked it out but she is using dowels
I have followed instructions and substituted the boba straws for the dowels. It's a matter of preference, although I do not put a dowel in the center, I just use the straws.
I love the boba straws!
No big changes using straws, you just use fewer of them, so any tutorial will work.
With dowels, it's generally 1 per 1" of cake size above [so if an 8" is going on a 12", you put in 8 dowels} but with straws it's 1 per 2" of cake size above [so in the previous example, you'd put in just 4 straws].
Cake boards are the same size as the cake. To adhere one tier to the other, I use sticky fondant [a little fondant with water added to it] on top of the straws for fondant cakes and royal icing on the straws for buttercream cakes.
Thank you guys for the help!
