I know that you put the tiers into the fridge with a crumb coat to harden. How can I put the plastic dowels into the tiers ( Coast cake plates with attached plastic tube dowels) after applying Fondant without wrecking the Tier? It will be Marshmallow Fondant which is a little softer. I'm afraid the plastic tubes will pull the Fondant into the holes and move the Fondant Frosting.

Hi, I don't know what type of dowel you have mentioned. But when I put my dowel rods in, I put them as soon as I cover the cakes with fondant. And leave it aside. icon_smile.gif

I've only used the wilton hollow plastic dowels, but they cut right through the marshmallow fondant. It doesn't affect the appearance of the tier in any way...it's just like cutting out a piece with a plastic cookie cutter.

I've used the Coast system for a Castle wedding cake, but the frosting was BC. I love the Coast plates and dowels. Just did a cake in MMF, had to
push in pretzel rods for palm trees. I did this while the fondant was soft. I had no problems. Maybe there is some CCers who do this on set MMF.
