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.
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.
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.
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.
Push the four dowels into the cake evenly spaced and in the previously marked area.
Place the next on top of the dowelled cake. Repeat the process for additional tiers.
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.
