Most definitely you'll need to dowel ALL the tiers so that they don't sink into each other AND yes for extra support, please run a dowel through the entire thing. I suggest you stack all your separator plates together and drill a hole through them all at the same time, this way you've got 'guide holes'.

I HAVE to make deadline! I live on an island..we don't have pre-made readily available. And there's NO WHITE in the stores. Only multi. So I've picked out the orange ones.

So I need to do a flesh toned cake in MF. Thing is there's only multi-colored mallows at the store. I got a couple bags and I'm wondering: use the yellow or the orange and add the colouring? HELP!!!!!A.S.A.P!!!!!
By the way, this cake is due to be collected in 4 hours....
I'm SO SORRY! I have no idea why that is! I clicked on the link and went to godaddy. And now I'm trying to get sugarzen directly and I'm being re-directed all over the place! This is weird.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Ruth are you out there? Can you shed some light...Oh shoot! She'll be at Cake Camp.
