Cut the pillars flush with the top of the cake. each tier is on a plate and the legs of the plate fit inside the pillars in the lower cake.

Ditto what Debi said.. lol

Seriously, when I do a stacked cake I use the hidden pillars exclusively. Makes a good sturdy cake. I have even transported a 3 tier completely assembled and had no problems.

How are hidden pillars stronger than regular wooden dowel rods?
