I have a presentaion for a final on Tuesday and just need some help!! Ok when stacking a cake do you use wooden dowels, straws? When using either of these do you also use cake boards? Thanks for your input.

I usually use boards and straws, unless it is a really heavy cake-then I use dowels

2 teirs i use boards and straws, 3 tier or more i use stress free, but if they didn't want to pay the deposit i would use dowels.

SPS system (first choice)

If it's only 2 tier and i don't have the SPS sizes I need then cake boards and dowels.

(btw, ALWAYS use boards under each tier, otherwise you have nothing holding up the cake except the cake below, which won't hold up to the weight)

Wooden dowels and boards between and never had a casualty. Well, almost. The second Mardi Gras cake I did I forgot to put a center dowel thru both tiers. My daughter wanted to drive and took corners a little to qickly and the top cake slid.... off the board...... I emergency fixed the damage to the bottom tier and border, but was a lesson. Was not failure of the support system.
