Ugh! This is my 1st 4 tier, square cake.
This sucker is HEAVY. It is a 6/8/10/12 square, filled, fondant cover beast.
I am using SPS for supports but I just about ruined the whole stacked cake trying to get my hands under the bottom tier to move it to the fridge. The cardboard just wanted to mush-i-fy and buckle. I have it sitting on a sturdy cutting board right now but I am SWEATING because I'm going to have to get this hefty sucker off the cutting board onto the bride's plateau tomorrow. Help!! Should I run up to Home Depot and get some plywood? I do have a sturdy, foam core cake board that I had planned on using but had to ditch it when the bride let me know that it was too wide (so I could cut that down to size if that would indeed work).
Even if I get some plywood - how am I supposed to move it from my cutting board to the plywood?
Thanks a ton CCers!!
