Do I need dowels if I'm only using single layer cakes? I want to do a 10 inch bottom and a 6 inch top. Thanks for any responses
Anytime you stack more than 2 layers or 4"of cake, you need to dowel it. If you are setting one 6" on one 10" than no you don't need to dowel it.
And if you're stacking a 4" tall tier on top of another tier, you need a board (same size as the cake) under that top tier.
Actually a good idea to have ALL tiers on boards the same size--makes it easier to move them around.
Thank you. I figured since it was one layer it would be ok but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask
