Do you have to dowel cakes when you have 2 tier's? I have only done one and did not. I am doing one for a wedding and need to make sure. Thanks
yes, you must dowel 2 tiers or the upper tier can crush the lower tier. I also dowel each tier if it is taller than 4 inches. Better safe than sorry
I certainly would.
Thanks so much
Yes, the upper tiers must each be on a cake board and supported by dowels in the tier below it.
So that explains why my 2 tier cake looked like a land slide on one side of it. I didn't put dowels or a cake board in between practice makes perfect one day for me I hope
Use a cake board, and make sure your dowels are all the same height. Find the highest part of the bottom cake, and make all dowels that height. The dowels support the upper not the bottom cake.
