Should cake boards be used when staking 3-4 layer cake? I saw the cardboard ones on the Wilton website. To my understanding, after reading, I should be using wooden dowels.
Should I be using both the cardboard cake circles (lined with foil or not) and the wooden dowels?
Not sure what to do...
Layers = different levels of cake that are typically 1 or 2" tall that make up one tier
Tier = different cakes three to four inches in height made up of layers
So for 3-4 layers of cake--no, no dowel or stakes are necessary.
For a 3-4 tier cake yes for every tier you use dowel and boards.
K8memphis is correct. I usually wrap my cake boards with plastic wrap to prevent a possible problem.
Thanks for the information.
Just to confirm;
My 3 - 4 tier cake will require cake boards wrapped and also dowels for each layer?
Yep, sure will.
