I plan on making my first three tier, a 10, an 8 and a 6.
Should i be using dowel rods for this?
I would use drinking straws, but dowels would work fine too. I would recommend running a dowel through all three tiers.
I prefer the SPS or bubble tea straws.
I do for anything tiered. I use the bubble tea straws though, those are awesome!!! There are tons of forums on here about how to stack cakes and the "protocol" for it. Good luck
I always use the thin (pencil diameter) size n between tiers and then a long one thru all tiers in the center.....hope this helps...also I use a pencil sharpener to make a slight point to hammer it thru, use sharpener for this only
Of course, I always recommend SPS. It's a great support system and extremely easy to use. And sturdy. And cheap.
hehe i knew leah_s would say sps!! any forum i read i see you talking about it!
Yes, definitely use some form of support system. Dowels should work great. I haven't tried bubble tea straws but alot of people have mentioned using those in other forum postings....
thank you all...I am definately going to look into each of the recommeded options and do my homework..
Thanks again for the info.....
