I'm looking to stack a 2-tier fondant covered cake, but the top tier is on a cake circle, so I'm not sure about using a center dowel.

If I don't use a center dowel, how do I stack it? Do I put a little buttercream on the bottom tier, so that the top tier can adhere to it? How else will it stick on there?

Am I supposed to lift the top tier off its cake circle, and then put that on the bottom tier?

What should I do?

TIA! icon_smile.gif

You leave the top tier on the cake circle.
You put dowels--wooden or plastic--in the bottom tier to support the top tier.
You can add some buttercream, royal, or softened fondant on top of the bottom tier to help it stick. I
f you want to , you can drive a long sharpened dowel thru all of the tiers. You just hammer it thru the cake & cake board.

Two tier...no center dowel necessary. Really. Unless you are going to be driving crazy or someone is picking it up.
