Stressing over this cake. Any help would be appreciated. I need to stack 4 3 inch layers. Can I dowel through all 4 layers (with wooden dowels) or do I need to use cardboard in between two layers and then put a big dowel through all 4 layers. I hope I'm making sense. In other words, can someone PLEASE tell me how to stack this cake. Thank you so much.
Hi, haven't done anything like that. But if I ever to do it, I would place each cake on cake boards and dowel 3 cakes. then stack and insert a centre dowel.
An chance you're confusing tiers with layers? Or are you making a cake 12 inches tall, all the same diameter?
I agree with Bashini...dowel each layer with cardboard in between for the best support (weight wise).
Then a good thicker dowel through all of the layers for stablility.
leah I'm making a cake 12 inches tall, all 10 x 10
i would use a boards and dowels every 3-4 inches.
