Yes, you need to place dowels underneath each tier or the weight will cause them to sink, cause bulging and ruin your cake. Use a cake pan and a level to make sure you cut all of your dowels the same length.

Have fun! It's a great looking cake!

Agree with CakeDiosa. You definitely need supports under each tier otherwise your cakes will collapse from the weight. This looks like a fun cake to do! Post pictures when you are done! icon_smile.gif
