I have only done a couple of stacked cakes and i honestly have no idea how they came out as far as the icing goes, but this party i will be attending and i want to make sure everyone gets cake with icing on it. It is going to be 3-4 stacks high. I planned on putting each cake on a board cut to fit its size and cover the edge of the board with BC to disguise, but my concern is when the board is lifted, the icing on the next layer coming with it. how do all you pros handle this? thanks for the help!

Yes, please, someone help answer this question. I've heard to rub cornstartch on the board, but I've never tried it. I'm curious to the answer.

I guess you could sprinkle a little cornstarch but I have used powdered sugar. Just a little sprinkle!!
