How do i do it so they stay together. Do you put something in between each layer or do you put one of those dowls down the center? thanks for the help. I would like to know this because when it come time to cut the cake. Do you have to take each layer down or you cut from there?

I'm not sure what you are talking about....tree?
Stacked layers that make a cone?
If that is it - yes I vote board and dowel each tier.

Hi, I am going to assume that "tree" was a typo and you really meant that you are trying a THREE layer stacked cake. In this case, you do put dowels in each supporting level of cake. For example, if I am making a cake 10", 8", and 6" stacked cake, I will put 6 1/4" dowels in the 10" level. Then I place the 8" on a stacking plate and then place them on top of the dowels. Repeat the process for the next level. When you are done, it is helpful to put one long dowel down the middle of the whole cake. Wilton explains this a little better in their yearbooks if you have a copy. HTH icon_smile.gif
