I'm making a 2 tier cake for my baby's 1st birthday, i've made 2 other cakes but both were 1 tier and neither mud, my question is do i need supports and a cake board between? i know people do it but is it necessary?
My wedding, engagement and other daughters 1st birthday cake were all 2 or 3 tier and none had supports or extra boards and all were mud, they werent filled or anything either if that makes a difference?
also seeing as im making mud and can do it over a few days, do i cover with fondant and decorate the same day or cover, let it dry then decorate?
the other 2 were baked, crumbcoated, covered and decorated, all in a matter of hours.
thank you in advance
