Wanting to do a Chocolate wrapped (collar) cake with strawberries and chocolate curls on each tier, but how would I go about stacking these tiers? its more the placing of each tier without damaging the chocolate wrap I want to know. We have a long way (50mins) to travel to venue so would prefer not to stack first.
Any ideas ?
Typically cakes are stacked with the supports bearing the weight so the cake doesn't get squished down.
Yes I do that, but I am more concerned with actually picking up the tier and placing on the 1st tier without damaging the chocolate wrap/collar on both tiers. I generally pick up and stack a cake with my hands around the sides, but would mark a chocolate wrap in the very least !
i would stack the cake, wrap it then deliver it stacked -- how could you get the second tier on there otherwise -- it would be nearly impossible to place without damaging the chocolate wrapping on the bottom tier -- unless you have a cake forklift or crane :)
you mean with the chocolate rising above the height of the tier right?
you could wait to place the strawberries on site if you wanted
