I'm doing a 2 tiered cake using hollow pillars. I've marked the bottom cake, inserted the dowels and put the pillars through it, which are just sitting on to the bottom cake. The top cake is on a thin board as it's only a 6" cake. What do I do next? Do I just balance the top cake on the pillars or do I stick the pillars on to the bottom cake or on to the board of the top cake. I'm worried the top cake might fall off.
You've used the hollow pillars AND dowels? Maybe I don't understand...
When you use the hollow pillars all you need is a separator plate to place on top of the pillars. Then your cake (on its cardboard) goes on top of the separator plate. My Wilton instructor used double-sided puffy tape between the separator plate and the cardboard to hold it on.
what she said.
Oh no, what have I done. I was thinking that without the dowels, the pillars & the top cake may go through the bottom cake. I don't really want to take the dowels out now as I'll probably ruin the decoration. I've got no choice but to leave everything as is and hope for best. What a lesson to learn.
