A "Stress-Free" approach for Stacking and Delivering Tiered Cakes!



Do you just dread cutting dowel and stacking tiered cakes....Do you hold your breath until your cake is safely delivered?
Well, now there is a product the help alleviate the headaches of stacking tiers and avoid shifting during delivery. Stress-free Cake Supports are true to their name! It takes the worry from shifting or sliding tiers! Arlene Haase is pictured here with her creation---the "Stress-free Cake Support System".

Here's how they work..

1. Instead of pushing in and cutting dowels, just center the stainless steel ring over the tier and make a slight impression to mark your spot.


2. Push a bamboo skewer into one impression to figure the depth of your cake.  

3. Mark the skewer and using a ruler, measure the depth.


4. Then use the plastic dowels closest to your depth. You can order them in any size. I have three different sizes.


5. Screw in the plastic legs to the stainless ring measuring to the the exact depth.


6. Then just center over the top of the cake and press in.


7. Pipe a line of buttercream over the ring and place the next tier on top of the ring.


Repeat the same process for the next tier, until your cake is stacked.


Not only does this system save time, but the energy of worrying about the stability of your tiered cake!


Now the cake is complete and ready for delivery....stress free!!
