I have only made one stacked cake so far. It was all buttercream, I used SPS support and it traveled without any problems. But my question is about when you disassemble the tiers, is there a special  way to do this so when you take them apart the icing does not come off the top of the bottom tier.  In May I will be doing another 2 tier, all buttercream and I was thinking of using dowels and cake boards instead of the SPS since its a smaller cake.

I put pieces of waxed paper on the bottom tier, then stack the top tier on that. The paper is a little smaller than the top tier, but there's no good way to be 100% sure that icing won't come off. The waxed paper stops it a little but it will still get pulled off, there's no way around it no matter what stacking system you use.

Thank you I will try that next time, I thought maybe I was doing something wrong.

BTW I have been reading your blog, "fun with email scammers" had me rolling on the floor.
