I am going to attempt to make my DD the cute pumpkin cake with the black cats around it.

My question is, when I put the 2 bundt cakes together, do I dowel it and put a cake board between the layers?

I was thinking I should but didnt know 100% so I thought I would come to the experts!

Oh the party is next weekend icon_confused.gif

I think it is a lot easier to serve if you put a cake board between the two cakes. I don't know if doweling is absolutely necessary, but I think it does result in a more stable cake.

What I did was use a cake board with a circle cut out, which allowed me to put the stem on the end of a section of paper towel roll tube, which was put through the hole in the center of the cake, all the way down to the board. That made the cake nice and stable, and unlikely to slide during transport.

Thank you for the tips!

Luckily I wont have to transport because we are having the party at home.

I've never used a cake board or dowels with this cake.

I doweled and boarded too. Although I agree that it's not a requirement, it indeed made cutting and serving easier, plus it also allows you to bake two different flavors if you're so inclined. I think I used four dowels plus a center dowel, but I was traveling 60 miles with it.

Thank you for your help!

I think I will atleast dowel and use the cake board. Dont think I will do a center dowel.

Thanks again

Oh goodness no, you don't need a center dowel for a cake at home icon_smile.gif. Have fun!
