after three glasses of wine I offered to make a friends engagement cake. I am going to make a 2 tier 6 layer mud cake with buttercream frosting, 10 inches on the bottom and 7 on the top tier.
This is the largest cake I've made, and am wondering if it will need dowels. It only needs to be transported about 10 minutes away. I have never used dowels before and am trying to avoid it if possible.
Thanks for your advice, and no more wine promises from me!

I would definitely use support. The top tier is rather small. It should be fine to use bubble tea straws (the fat ones).
Thanks for your advice! The more I read the more I think it's a good idea to do. Thanks :)
put in one straw/dowel and mark where to cut it -- pull it out and cut all of them the same length to that mark -- it's no bueno to stick 'em all in and snip them off -- they need to be the exact same length so it's not wobbly --
you got this
best to you
I'd use four of those ^^^ in a 10x7
Thanks for your advice K8!
I'm baking today, I got this :)
