I'm making my first stacked fondant cake. Do you insert the dowel rods before you cover the cake in fondant or after?

Thanks for your help.

I've only done one stacked fondant cake and I inserted my dowel rods after I covered the cake with fondant.


See if this will help you...

Hi Bonnell, you need to insert the dowels after you cover the cakes with fondant.

Here is a great tutorial from wilton on stacking cakes.

HTH.

P.S. Susie, you beat me to it! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Bashini and Susie 53. I thought that was probably how it was done but wanted to double check.

Thanks again

It is up to you, but if you choose to dowel before you fondant your cake be sure to mention the dowels to the customer because they are harder to see under fondant.

Hi neighbor! *wave* You should come on over to the Michaels on Fairmont and take some classes. icon_smile.gif

I have taken all the Wilton classes but when we did tiers we used the pillar method. Took my Course I & II on Fairmont then went to Baytown for the III and Fondant ones.

Sorry for the delay in responding but I haven't gotten my notifications about watched topics and just figured out how to look them up on my own.

Thanks to everyone that responded.

By the way, the cake turned out beautifully (for a change) and the stacking worked like a charm.
