I really should know the answer to this question, but I don't so I'll ask it here. I am doing a whimsical, mad hatter, topsy-turvy, whatever you want to call it cake for a bridal shower this weekend. I am not assembling it until I get to where it is being delivered (I may be crazy, but I'm not totally nuts). It has a 2" high 9" layer, a 3" high 8", a 3" high 6" and 2" high 5 and 4 inch layers. Should I worry about putting dowel rods in the 5" cake or do you think since the cake isn't going together until I get to the shower site, it would hold up on its own?

I would dowel the cake so that you know it will be stable and not have any mishaps with your cake.
