Normally my cakes are two 2" layers with filling in between the layers, so just over 4" high and I use the SPS system to stack.

I am doing a cake this weekend: 12", 10", 8" and 6" rounds. All 2" layers but torted with a thin layer of ganache.

Will I still need supports since the layers are only 2"? If so, what should I use? I do not want to have to cut the pillars for the SPS and I REALLY DO NOT want to use dowels if I can avoid it at all.

Thanks for the help!

I would at least put one layer of supports between the bottom two and top two layers. It would be just like having a two tier cake, just different sizes. HTH. Good Luck. I think dowels or bubble straws or even sps would be fine.

I guess I could use the sps between two layers. I never even thought of that! Thanks!
