Cake Stacking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have seen so many beautiful cakes that have been stacked without a border to cover the cardboad cake rounds that cakes are sitting on. I have only done two staced layer cakes and I don't know how to get around not having to create a boarder. Any advise?


Thanks,
Sina

I would think what your seeing is cakes that have been done with Fondant or Pettinice or Ganach and what your doing is getting the board the same size as the cake or not putting a board under the cake when your stacking it ... I hope this helps...

Hi Sina, One thing I like to do is use a smaller cakeboard or cut a cake board to a slightly smaller size than the layer. This way no cardboard shows.
For instance if you are stacking an 8" round on top of a 10" round
Instead of using the normal 8" cakeboard, I would use a 6" board.

When doing this you need to make sure that your dowels are under the small board.
