I think i would use a cake board under the 8 inch and a few dowel rods for support, just to be on the safe side. you can't go wrong like that.

Definitely cut some dowels for under the 8 in, I would hate for you to take the chance its not heavy (after frosting, its alot heavier than you think). Just cut all the dowels (about 5, one in the middle, the other 4 around the middle one) the same size. And make sure the 8 in is on a board.

I agree 100%, its not worth the worry of not supporting.
