The cake that didn't make it - Page 2

post #16 of 23
I always use a cake drum on the bottom. The principle is the same if you were using foam core too. Or several cardboards glue together for added support.

I personally hate SPS. I have used it several times but I never liked it. For me, bubble tea straws and 2 wooden dowels works great.

I had the same thing happen to me a couple of years ago. It's a nightmare. I just stood there and stared at the cake in the back of my car. I was able to save the top and the middle. This is why I don't like using gel fillings. From the picture the top cake looks like it's leaning just a little. A center dowel would have worked great. Anything over two tiers gets a center dowel from now on.

I stack my tiers on cardboard circles on each tier...So I'm guessing I couldn't do a center dowel through each cardboard circle? What should I do instead? HELP!

if you are doing a 3 tiered cake it cardboard rounds between the tiers (which you always should have), you sharpen the end of a wooden dowel and hammer is through all the tiers untill you hit the bottom board. It sounds terrifying but i have a "cake" hammer that i keep in my caddy and hammer away. good luck.
