I need help putting together a 5 tier hexagon shape cake. will dowels or wilton plastic rods do the thing? or what kind of plates and rods should I use? any help will be appreciated.
Here's my 5-tier hex cake: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1510536
I just cut cardboards to shape (used the pans as a template, and my handy dandy box cutter!). I always use wooden dowels for my cakes, except for 5 tier ones. In those, I use the wilton hollow plastic ones in the bottom tier and then just the wooden dowels in all other tiers.
But basically .... wooden dowels and cardboards. That's it.
P.S. I did final assembly on-site.
thank you very much. I always use dowels too, but my biggest cake so far has been a 3 tier.
