AHi everyone ,
I'm new to this forum and was just looking for some advice. My friend has asked me to make her a 3 tiered wedding cake covered in buttercream .
The venue is 2 hours away and I was wondering if anyone had tips on transportation?
I am also unsure how to stack the cake correctly as all the wedding cakes I have made ( all 3 of them ) have not been stacked . Would you use a cake board under each layer as well as dowels?
I am worried about my fingers making a mess of the buttercream whilst stacking .
If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance :)
ASPS is probably your best bet. Just look for Leahs, she's got stickies about it and it's in her tagline.
AAnd yes, every tier needs it's own board...you can't just pile up two tier of cake on top of a third and not have a crushed, pile of mess on your hands.
AThank you !

Avoid messing up BC by doing this (read post #6):
AGreat thanks so much !
the chances of getting the icing all mucked up when stacking are greatly reduced when each tier is VERY well chilled.
