AI would like to know when using acrylic seperators on cakes how can I avoid the doweling holes that are created when putting in the supports of the cake. Obviously the weight of cake on seperators still needs the supports in cake underneath but I always put the doweling, buba straws into cake after I have fondant it. So this is going to show underneath the clear acrylic plate. Also do I only need to dowel to the diameter of the acrylic plate? Many thanks in advance for any suggestions and help . Nina

if the plates are clear, then I would put the supports in before covering the cake in fondant.  You don't need any supports outside the diameter of the plate because they wont be supporting anything.  good luck!

AThanks. That makes sense to put supports in before fondant.
