Hey guys!

I am doing my first tiered cake. It is an 8" round and a 6" round. Do I have to use dowels and cake boards in between the tiers or can I just stack it on top?

Thanks,

Machel

Anytime I have more than 2 layers of cake (not torted layers, but actual layers), I will dowel with cardboards.

It not only helps support it, but helps prevent any toppling.

Make sure to level the layers too.
