I'm going to be making a 4 tiered fondant cake using the plastic seperator plates. If I dowel each layer well before buttercream then fondant, will it be strong enough for the 4 tiers since I can't put a rod thru all layers with the plastic plates? I noticed everyone seems to be using the boards!
Thank you

A rod thru all layers is not necessary. It sometimes can be a false 'hope'. Why not use Wilton's 'hidden pillars'? That will make a nice support system........not quite as good as SPS but good.

If you have time, order SPS. Easy, cheap, sturdy.
