How To Stack A Wedding Cake

A tiered wedding or celebration cake design always creates a wow factor and always looks impressive.  We are frequently asked at our Sugarbliss Cake Decorating shop, how do you stack a tiered wedding cake or a tiered celebration cake? So follow these simple steps to securely stack any shaped cake.


Step 1

Place a thin cake card, approximately 2 inch smaller than the next tier up, place in the middle of the bottom base cake. Gently press down to make a slight impression or mark round the edge using a scribing tool. This will show the area where the dowels can be placed.


Step 2

At the highest point of the cake, push a dowel into the cake and mark the dowel above the icing (approx 1mm) using a edible pen.


Step 3

Pull out the dowel and using it as a template mark three more dowels. Score the dowels with a sharp knife or scissors and snap.


Step 4

Push the four dowels into the cake evenly spaced and in the previously marked area.


Step 5

Place the next on top of the dowelled cake. Repeat the process for additional tiers.


Step 6

Once you have completely finished stacking attach ribbon around the base of each cake , securing with royal icing, or pipe around to hide the join. The tiered cake is now ready for cake decorating.


Loving Everything To Do With Cakes!


New Products At Sugarbliss Cake Craft

The last few weeks have been really hectic with wedding cakes to design, make and deliver, sugar models and sugar flowers to create and celebration cakes of all shapes and designs to complete.

However, it is always exciting to find the time to review new products which have recently arrived in our Sugarbliss Cake Craft & Cake Decorations shop. We have just had arrived our first supply of the absolutely fantastic Beau Product Flavours and extracts. There are a whole range of delightful flavours to make your cakes taste superb every time from candy floss to madagascas vanilla extract.

The flavours are engineered from building blocks of small units of flavours or extracts that are carefully put together to form a specific profile. By combining these buidling blocks, the flavours are adjusted in different directions. For example, ripe, flowery or fresh to produce a unique finished flavour profile.

One of the most common challenges when making flavours, especially those based on citrus, is heat stability. These flavours therefore have been developed for a bake safe consistent flavour.
