NOTE: If any of your cake tiers are taller than 6 in., follow "Stacking Tall Tiers" instructions below.
For a sturdy base, tape two or three cake boards together. For best results, use boards that are at least 2 in. in diameter larger than the base cake layer.
If your cake design includes a bottom border, or your cake is more than 2 tiers, an even larger diameter cake base makes moving the finished cake easier. Cover taped cake boards in Fanci-Foil wrap. Level, fill and stack bottom cake layer on covered cake board. Make sure cake is perfectly level. Cover cake with icing or fondant as desired.
