i am making a wedding cake for tomorrow.
its a 16", 13", 10", 7" and a ceramic topper, round cakes, stacked.
my question is i don't know how many dowels to use in each tier! this is my first stacked cake and i have to admit i'm nervous!
the doweling i have is 140mm wooden doweling.
also, do i cut the doweling the exact height of the cake?
i would appreciate any help you can give me!
thanks in advance
I've never done large stacked cakes before, so I'm not too sure about the number of dowels to use. But I think you should check out this video to get some stacking advise. HTH and Good luck!
Cut the dowel the same length to each other--very very very very very important.
I usually put dowels about 2-3 inches apart starting at about an inch or 2 in from the perimeter of the cake that they will be sitting under. I think 2-3 inches is right? I'm not a good judge of size, I always have to check! lol Don't put one in the center, though, put a large center dowel in from the top all the way through to the bottom.
