In this tutorial I am stacking a buttercream cake.
Stacking a cake can be a bit scary. Practice will help
calm down your fears. This cake I am stacking is 4 tiers.
6, 8, 10 an 12 are the sizes of these cakes.
Even though you can't see it, every
cake has a cardboard underneath.
The cardboard is
covered with wax paper on both sides.
The dowel I
added at the end is sharpened so it can break through the
cardboard. I put it to the side of the center so I dont hit the other
dowels. I do fondant cakes and taller cakes a bit different than
what I do here. This is meant more for buttercream cakes up to 4 tiers.
I buy my cardboard dowels in Amazon.
