???????????????????????

Are you making a 15x10x4 sheet cake? If so, no, no dowels. If it's something else, we need more info.

Do you mean 2 layer cake, or two tier cake? It sounds like you have a single tier cake sized 10x15...two layers of cake separated by a layer of filling? No, you don't need dowels. Dowels are to support upper tiers of cake. That should make it easier!

a good rule of thumb is dowels/plates every 4" of vertical cake. So it sounds like you'll be ok on this one since you're not doing tiers.
