I'm a beginner and I'm making a 3 tier cupcake stand for my friend's birthday. At the top will be a small 6in cake. probably about 2-3 layers (Havent decided yet), covered with fondant and some decorations.
Do I still need to use dowels even if its not a stacked cake or do you use dowels so they cake layers don't cave in even if its one size, would the weight be distributed evenly? I've tried looking online but it only explains for stacked cakes so I'm assuming they're only for stacked cakes but I don't want to mess up so I'm making sure.
