I am wanting to try stacking a tall tier cake. My plan is to do 8" round bottom tier (stacking 4 x 2" high cakes) with a regular round 6" top tier (just 4" high). I have stacked cakes before but not into one tier like this...to give you an idea of what im talking about...http://cakesdecor.com/cakes/9338 (these dont look like typical 4" tiers to me anyway). So my questions... should I put a board (and dowels) in the middle of the bottom tier before stacking the last 2 layers? Also I am wanting to make gold fondant..the more true the gold the better - I dont want it to look yellow or mustard. Does the americolor gold make a good color? Or any other suggestions (I dont have an airbrush or anything and I dont want streaky paint lines)?
