I have asked to make a friends wedding cake, it's my first and I'm terrified that it'll tip over!
She wants a simple 3 tier round cake with butter cream frosting and not fondant. I've never tiered a cake and am very nervous. After i've dowled the bottom cake and have the second tier waiting to go, do I frost the entire bottom cake (including the top of the cake) and THEN stack the second cake on top?
Can I use the frosting to stick all the cakes together during the stacking process and then frost all three tiers at the same time??
I'm a little worried that if I don't affix all the tiers together somehow (assuming I don't use a dowel from top to bottom through all three tiers) that the top tiers will slide right off!!
Help?? I definitly need some assistance on the best (and safest) way to go about this.
