AOnly you csn decide what to do.

I would never make a two-tiered cake without support.

Why don't you want to use dowels?

might work for a while or longer--depending if you use pound cake or fruit cake

Without support your top tier is going to sink into the bottom tier.  Why don't you want to have support dowels/straws?

AIn general, no, it won't work. There are a couple types of cake you might be able to get away with, but the average cake will sink.
