Do you have a Wilton year book? They have a section that talks about stacking cakes and their method for doing so. You can also access their info on line at wilton dot com. I think for a beginner that is a great place to start. Also look at the "How Do I" forum and read Leah's sticky note about SPS. She provides detailed instructions about how to use that system. Also Sugarshack has a great DVD on stacking cakes and the dvd is worth every penny.

If you get stuck and need an answer, send me a PM and I will try to give you an answer.

I'm sure if you do a search in the forums for cake tiers, cake stacking, etc. you will also find a wealth of info.

Can't wait to see how the birthday cake turns out. Good luck thumbs_up.gif

Yes, I would recommend getting a Wilton yearbook to learn the basics of cake stacking. There are also some great videos on YouTube. Maybe do a practice cake to see how it goes and any problems/questions that come up, post them here. Someone always has an answer or great advice! Good luck!
