I am planning to make a two tier round cake (6" and 10"). I read in a cake decorating book that one should put a thin cake board under each layer of the same size as the cake...and then a thick board beneath all. I totally get the need to put a board the same size as the small layer underneath it...but can't I just place the 10" layer directly onto the thicker, covered cake board? I am planning to decorate the cakes with fondant (my first attempt!). Thanks in advance!
