Tiering Dummy Cakes | Step-By-Step

Tips & tricks on how to tier dummy cakes!

Creating a beautifully frosted and tiered cake requires a little bit of theory and some practice. It’s not as simple as just stacking the tiers on top of each other. You need a structure.

In this PDF, using step-by-step pictorial instructions, we will be showing you how to tier dummy cakes that you can use in combination with real tiers or use as display cakes!

*Note: This course is only comprised of PDF material. This PDF course doesn’t so much cover frosting technique as it does tiering logic and working with dummy tiers.
