My friend has an upcoming birthday, so I'm making her a small tiered cake as a gift. Way too much cake but it's something I wanted to play around with and she certainly won't mind having too much
So what's the best way to get rid of the dowels used for support? Just take them out before I cut the layer up, or take them out as I go along? I'm only doing a 2 tier so I'm not going to put a center dowel in.
I'm just thinking it may be awkward to pull them out since they're flush with the top of the cake - don't want to just dig on in there to get a hold of one
When I disassemble a wedding cake, I remove the tiers and pull out all of the dowels at once. Since they are pretty flush with the top of the cake, you won't have to "dig" them out. No biggie.
