I want to make a large, wooden or acrylic cake board that I can reuse. I'm going to look today...starting at home depot. I plan to do a 12"-10"-6" cake. Up until now, I've always put a long dowel through my smaller stacked cakes, and pushed it straight into the bottom cake board. I was told that securing the layers to the bottom board will keep it from sliding during transport. Now, how would you secure a stacked cake to a wooden or acrylic cake board? How do you ensure all 3 layers will be securely attached to that board, if you can't "push the dowel" into the permanent board? THank you

I always top my base masonite board with at least 1/2-inch foamboard. Sometimes, 1/2-inch foamboard plus 1/4-inch heavy duty foamboard. The dowel goes through the foamboard and stops at the permanent board.
