My husband had me buy two of them when we saw them at the ICES in Charlotte. I like them very much and use them for my more heavy dense cakes, and I have two of the Wilton ones as well. I don't consider any of them a waste of my money. They are integral pieces of my cake tools:smile:

I use one very similar to the Wilton one, that my husband made me at work, but the main trick to it is freezing  the cakes hard before you stack. (Don't freeze them all the way through!) It really keeps the dents and chunks of missing icing at bay. And finger marks!

You freeze each iced tier before you stack it on? I've always been leery of freezing when frosted - but maybe it's OK to freeze just enough to make them handle-able (if that's a word!)?

Heck yeah, i do! I have a sand up deep freeze that is empty 5 days a week, it's sole purpose is freezing my cakes to stack them !

I know just how you feel, I was told that about 2-3 years ago, it changed my life ;-)

 

Just make sure it is good and hard, and you'll be fine! It may get a little dewy, so if it is decorated, just don't touch it, but if it isn't decorated and you have fondant appliques to put on, take advantage of the dew, and stick them on with no extra water, or glue ;-)
