My first three tier cake.. whole loads of questions and advise.. please.. - Page 3

post #31 of 47

everyone will be very happy at your hubby's work!! I am sure it will taste wonderful!!! That's one thing about making mistakes is that you learn from errors and the cakes can still be eaten and enjoyed by many!!!Take your time with the new cake you will be re-baking and take it one step at a time. Follow Leah's directions and I am sure everything will turn out okay this time.  Hang in there and don't get discouraged!! I know that you can do it!!! Have faith!!

Keep us all updated at the progress!!!

 

I am still learning myself so I have made plenty of mistakes. The last cake I made bulged out a little bit but it was not a tierd cake so it still turned out okay.. I made it for a neighbor and they were thrilled with it. I also put raspberry filling in it. I am learning not to put too much filling. This forum has really helped me to learn what I am doing wrong.  Thanks, Leah for all your help in giving us all tips to follow!!!! Good luck/Mary

Just got done with the top two tiers. The bottom tier is cooling while I will start working on the Thanksgiving cake.

Here is the pic. Please comment if I can do anything to impove.

I have a few questions.. yet again..

 

1. I am using bubble tea straws as support. Should I insert them in the middle tier right now? Would five be enough?

2. For the bottom tier, I am not going to torte the cakes.. thinking to just stack them both one on top of each other with strawberry jam (dam around). Would that work since the other tiers are 4 layers each? Also, I have Jello Strawberry pudding/pie filling.. can i mix that with butter cream instead to use as filling?

When should I stack them and when should i put the central dowel? I need to be there at 4:00

those 2 cakes look like a professional did them!! WOW!! They are both beautiful!!! They look very even. I am sure that one of the experts on this site can answer about the straws and filling. Like I said I have not yet tried a 2 or 3 tier cake yet.  I will be trying at the end of next month.  Looks like you have what it takes because your cakes look great!!!!! Way to go!

Thanks a bunch for the compliments.. Although, I am seeing soo many flaws here.. bumps and dents all over the cake.. the corners are not crisp neither are the sides... I guess practice practice and more practice...

Here is one you can watch that is showing how some stack cakes together.

You can watch these two until someone answers you about the filling.
