I've got a wedding cake due today. It's all done, everything is complete, I just need to get it to the venue later this afternoon.
One of the tiers is a double barrel and I can't for the life of me remember if I put supports in the bottom section of the double barrel last night as I was frosting and assembling. I can remember doing the top, but can't remember doing the bottom!
The top two tiers are dummy tiers - there's some weight to them but not as heavy as if they were cake.
My question is - do I disassemble everything to double check and fix if necessary? Or just take to the venue, finish stacking and cross fingers?!?
The cake itself is a solid hummingbird.
Thanks for your help!!
personally, I would check it if you have time. If it's a double height tier, you already have weight sitting on the bottom half of the tier. Add two more fondant covered tiers, and it sounds scary!
What about driving a metal rod through the cake board? I'm just not sure I have enough time to redo the whole double barrel. What do you think?
Hahaha, okay, just disassembled the double barrel and guess what.... yep, I had remembered to put the supports in after all!!
Now I have to re-fondant that fecker!! :)
Thanks for responding jennicake!
Lol oh no! Glad it turned out that you were safe after all :)
