hiya,i am making a wedding cake for tomorrow.its a 16", 13", 10", 7" and a ceramic topper, round cakes, question is i don't know how many dowels to use in each tier! this is my first stacked cake and i have to admit i'm nervous!the doweling i have is 140mm wooden doweling. also, do i cut the doweling the exact height of the cake?i would appreciate any help you can give me!thanks in advance
yeah my oven isn't big enough, i didn't know there were half tins, thats something i will have to see if i can get within the next day as i'm on a short time frame (last minute order, long story!)they have already picked their design so i would like to accommodate it as much as i can, though i'm assuming if you can use half pans without the stability being put into question then providing i can get the cake carved into a round it should stack ok?
hiya,i'm new to the world of stacked wedding cakes and have to say i'm a tad nervous that i have one due this weekend its a 4 tier, 16", 13", 10" 7" all rounds with a heart shaped topper.major question is that i was going to bake the bottom tier as 4 x 8" square cakes and then carve them to a 16" round, will this work or will it compromise stability? its a fruit cake for the bottom tier if that makes any difference?i also could do with some advise on how many dowels to...

i'm looking for inspiration of how to make writing look like it was done in pencil?i'm making a book cake for a teacher who is retiring and i would like it to look as though the writing on the cake was done in pencil as that what the kids would be using. the only thing i can think of if grey royal icing but grey isn't always the most attractive of colours especially in a decent amount of writing so wondered whether any of you had any ideas of another way to do it?thanks in...
