Hello! So I have a two tier cake this weekend to do and I've never stacked just two tiers before. I have done 3 tiers and to stack that I used wooden dowels and did about 4 per layer and pushed them all through to the bottom cake board and used one long one to go all the way from the top tier through to the bottom. I hope I'm making sense.
Do I have to have a long one in my two tier to go all the way to the bottom or can I just dowel the bottom tier and the top tier sits on top?
Please help! I'm soooo lost
Do the same as you did for the 3 tier. In my opinion you do NOT HAVE to have a long one. I delivered many 3 tier cakes without a centre/long one. You just have to be careful driving when delivering.
What size the tiers are can make a difference. If it's say a 10" w/an 8" on top it's going to be top heavy and you would be better off using the center one. If it a 12 & 8 no problem - it's much more balanced. If the sizes are close then put the whold cake on a bigger board to help balance it. Like the example above put the 10" on a 12" board then place that on a 16"er for transporting.
Oh boy.......lots of typos above :(
It's a 6" and 8"! Thanks for your help!! I'm new at this and woooow it's stressful haha
You don't need a center dowel. I never use one at all, but especially for a two-tiered cake, it's unnecessary.
yeah I agree with costume czar. For a two tier cale it should be fairly simple! stay calm and bake cake! :D Good luck!
