Use any combination of dowel rods, boards, separator plates and pillars. You may also use push-in pillars, which eliminate the need for dowel rods and a plate or board to support the pillars.

|FOR PILLARS WITH DOWEL RODS:
The key to success is inserting dowel rods accurately at every level for support.
Ice cakes on cake circles. To mark where pillars will go on highest stacked tier, center the separator plate for tier above (projections down) and gently press onto the tier. Lift plate off. Position stacked tiers, insert push-in pillars on highest stacked tier and position plated top tier on pillars.
