I just realized after about 10 hours....that I torted, filled, and stacked my cakes (two 8" rounds and one 6" round) for a flower pot cake, without any cardboard in between layers. I stacked them w/ the upside down method, carved them into a pot shape, and planned on flipping them in a bit. I am worried now that the bottom layer which is the 6" round isn't going to be strong enough to hold the two 8" carved layers on top??? I just measured my cake and it is about 7" tall.
So do I attempt to take it apart in between the 6 & 8" layers and insert cardboard? Or do you all think it will be ok without it? I planned on putting a dowel down the center once flipped, and wrapping the cake in terracota colored modeling chocolate.
Any opinions and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much!
