Hey guys! I'm about to do 2 wedding cakes where every layer except the top, are dummies. This may sound completely stupid......but here it goes anyway, just to make sure I'm doing this correctly.......
Do I have to dowel rod the top layer? One of the cakes is a two tier bottom stacked and the top (which is the real cake) will be seperated by a the acrylic pillar seperators and plate. Will those pillars go inside the dummy with no problem?
I'm done sounding like a dummy right now icon_redface.gificon_lol.gifthumbs_up.gif

I'm not sure what you're asking but here's my advice. The dummy cakes are strong enough to hold weight on their own, so you don't have to dowel your dummies. If only the top tier is actual cake, unless you are putting some type of heavy topper on it you won't need any dowels. I hope I answered your question.
