I have never stacked a cake before. For my little sister's birthday, I have a design idea that would involve stacking two round cakes - a 6" cake and a 4" cake.
They'll be small, but fairly dense (it's a "tiramisu" cake, so the cake is someone dense and soaked with a syrup).

For cakes that small, what do you recommend? dowels/cardboard cake rounds?

No matter what the size, if you are stacking one cake ontop of another, the top cake MUST be on a cardboard round, and there MUST be internal supports (dowels) inside th bottom cake.

When I'm making a cake as small as this I usually use straws for my support system. Just an idea I thought I would add.
