Good monring all,
I'm fairly new to cake decorating - took the first two levels of the Wilton classes approx. 1 year ago...haven't learned about tiering cakes yet...when making a tiered cake is each tier supposed to be layered?
yes. Unless you're doing a design that calls for a short tier.
And I'm sure you'll get answers that say to do whatever you want, but traditionally a tier is two layers. I torte each layer, so my tiers are four layers each.
