I was asked to make a chocolate cake with Rose’s fabulous shiny Lacquer Glaze. I’ve done it once before and know I can do the baking end of things, BUT, since it was just for fun and I didn’t need to transport it, I didn’t really need to think about how to get it onto a platter or in a cake box or anything. The cake is not assembled yet, so I’m hoping to get advice before I put it all together. It’s a 9” layer cake. The cardboard circles I have actually have sort of a scalloped edge, so I can’t put it on that on before pouring the glaze because it will obviously be a huge mess. I don’t have any plain cardboard circles. Is there some trick to it? Would a parchment paper round under the cake on the wire rack help? I’m sort of new to baking, so forgive my ignorance. This seems like such a stupid question, but I really need some advice…and fast.
Thanks in advance!
