Stacking a cake is the best way to ensure your tiered cake is secure, but it can also be frightening and intimidating. In this video, we will show you an easy way to stack a tiered cake even if you’re a beginner cake decorator. Watch as we break down how to stack a cake into a few simple steps using our Cake Construction System. To do this, each tier is placed directly on top of one another and the cakes are supported and stabilized using rods and cake boards.

Here’s what to do:

1. Pick a reliable recipe from a book, website, or author you trust, and make sure you’re using that book—its front matter, its headnotes, and its ingredient list—as its meant to be.

2. Before you get started, adjust your recipe to fit your pan size if necessary. You don’t want to bake a 10-inch round cake in an 8-inch round pan.

3. Figure out what you need to do to prepare the pan: Depending on the recipe, you may leave the pan bare, line the bottom with parchment and grease the sides, or grease and flour the whole pan.

4. Properly position your oven racks. If you’re baking one cake, position the rack in the lower third of the oven. If baking two cakes on multiple racks, position one rack in the upper third and another in the lower third. Rotate the pans from upper to lower and from back to front a little over halfway through baking time. How to Stack a Tiered Cake | Wilton

5. Make sure your leaveners are fresh. It’s more important to be vigilant with your baking powder than your baking soda. Cake Ideas, baking ideas, cake decorating compilation, Ideas, cakes, cake, cupcakes, Decorating, Satisfying

6. Make sure your ingredients are at the temperature specified in the recipe. Cold butter and eggs and no time to wait for them to warm up? No problem. There are fast and safe ways to bring these ingredients up to room temperature.

7. Use a scale to measure your ingredients—especially non-wheat flours. (And make sure that scale is accurate!)

If you’re not using a scale to weigh flour, it’s especially important that you’re measuring the flour the right way: Never shake or tap the measuring cup to settle the flour, or you may end with a dense, heavy cake.

8. Check to make sure your cake is finished before you take it out of the oven. Alice recommends a toothpick rather than a metal cake tester. Cake Ideas, baking ideas, cake decorating compilation, Ideas, cakes, cake, cupcakes, Decorating, Satisfying

9. It will be hard to wait, but you’ll need to cool your cake according to the recipe’s instructions. Most cakes baked in parchment-lined pans can be cooled entirely in their pans on cooling racks. Don’t cool the cake on the stove—it doesn’t make sense to cool a cake in the warmest place in your kitchen. How to Stack a Tiered Cake | Wilton

10. You’re so close to victory! Don’t ruin your cake when you remove it from the pan. Detach from the sides of the pan using a knife or spatula, then cover the pan with a rack, hold the rack and pan together, and flip the everything over. Remove the pan and peel off the parchment liner. To turn the cake right side up again, place another cooling rack on the cake, hold the two racks together gently, without squeezing the cake, and repeat the flip.

    My cakes always end up with a gap between tiers. Not sure why but I'm hoping you could help.

  4. Mia Shaw says:

    What do I do if I have three tiers?

  5. Mr. Bentley's World says:

    Hi! I have a quick question. I’m assuming if the cake I want to make is 3 tiers high, this method would be the same for the top-most tier adhering to rest of the cake? So, does that mean my center dowel needs to be the height of all 3 tiers, correct?

    Thank you so much for this video. Your explanation and illustrations showing the directions were concise, clear and enjoyable.

  6. Stephanie Speller says:

    I would like to know how to make the unicorn cake.

  7. Eyiwumi Olayinka says:

    Thanks for that very instructive video. How do I prevent fondant icing on cakes from becoming soft and draining during rainy season? I live in a tropical region.

  8. Vandana Tibrewal says:

    Hi, do u place the top tier with the board or without the board?

  9. dh says:

    cakes are so difficult and time-consuming from baking the cake, making the frosting, to icing it, decorating and support for multi tiers.

  10. Maggie Ranchhod says:

    Hi do u have to have holes in te upper cakes to pass the rod from the lower layer.

  11. Brittany Bousquet says:

    Great explanation! Thank you!!

  12. Madiha Hanif says:

    Pls one question! Was there a cake board below the univorn cake and the golden cake?? If so y can't i c it?? Is it cut? Also if i just place the unicorn cake( let's say it's that) without a board as i just pick the second tier and place on the dowel area where we apply candymelt to attach and than on top insert a dowel in the middle..cus tht be correct?

  13. Walter White says:



    Great tutorial! Quick question: I will be making an 8" and 10' stacked for a client. I will definitely tell them about the rods in the cake but how will they slice/serve the cake? Won't taking the rods out damage the cake?
    Thanks in advance!

  15. Happiness Praise says:

    Please how do i stack a 4 tiered cake with the dowels?

  16. toi jones says:

    Gosh this seems so difficult…

  17. Candy DeBartolo says:

    I'm hoping you can give me some more insight on stacking. I'm making a square bottom cake that will be supporting a soccer ball shape cake. The sphere shape is going to be covered in fondant to represent the moon. The placement I'm sure is key… I have to center it or can I have it more towards one corner of the bottom cake? How many support rods should I have for it? Bottom cake will be 12x12x2 the sphere is 6in diameter.

  18. onetier says:

    What's the point of the caps? Isn't it sufficient just to put the dowels on their own?

  19. Chris and Shana says:

    oh, what website does the hashtag go to?

  20. Chris and Shana says:

    I have never stacked a cake, but will be doing so now and adding these products to my birthday wish list. I always look forward to these tutorials, I learned more watching compared to in store classes. <3 Thank you <3

    Super helpful video, thanks!

  23. Love&Light LG says:

    I've been making and stacking cakes for years and I have never heard of crossing the grains when making your own cake drums. But it makes perfect sense especially with regard to stability. I've usually purchase a cake drum, but I have made my own as well. Never thought to cross them though. Great tip! Also my grandmother taught me how to make cakes, but when she stacked them she always added frosting as a glue between the tiers, as well as dowels. I've never sprinkled powdered sugar so that's a new one. Thanks

  24. Ariane Dubois says:

    Very important subject! Thanks!

  25. corerilla says:

    Please do a video about decorating with buttercream anything on the side of any kind of cake. Mine almost always fall or slide out of place.
