Hi there!  I'll be making a 2 tier cake, the bottom being a 2-layer 10" square, and the top a 2-layer 6" circle.  I see that bubble tea straws are great for support, but I'm wondering if I also need cake circles under my top layer for added support.  Or... do I just set the 6" cake directly on top of the straws?  Thanks in advance for the helpful tips :smile:

You definitely need circles under the top layer.

Thank you!  How many circles should I use? 2 or 3 layers, or is 1 enough?

just one to keep the top  cake from collapsing into the bottom one.
