I am right in the middle of making a tiered 4 in. on top of a 7 in. The cake is a dense chocolate stout cake almost like a brownie. Do I need to support the 4 inch cake with dowels? TIA!

Probably noticon_smile.gif It shouldn't be all that heavy. Do you have any plastic drink straws? You could put one to 3 of those in easily. I seldom dowel 6"ers.

Thanks! I have some heavy plastic straws that I think I will dowel with to be on the safe side.
