At the risk of sounding stupid, and I have heard the saying "never ask a question unless you already know the answer" LOL, but how do I stack a madeira cake ontop of a fruit cake?

 

I take it I dont need to dowel it due to the sturdiness of the bottom cake (fruit) but not sure what I should do.

 

Thanks for your help.

use a dowel just to be 100% confident it wont sink in..

I stack my cakes using a dowel or a thin cakeboard.

 

hope it helps.x

I always dowel every 4" of cake, no matter what type of cake it is. A fruit cake is very sturdy, but dowels will give you peace of mind :)

Thank you, I always thought that you would probably not need to dowel but it would make more sense. :)
