I am making my first 2 tier cake, sponge cake bottom is 9" top is 6". Will i need to support this or will they be ok just on top of the other?

If i do need to support it with dowles shouldi put them in before i ice the cake or after through the icing?

Thanks, Sarah

for every 4" of vertical height you need support. So, yes you have to put support in the bottom cake to, err . . . support the upper tier.

Ice the bottom tier then put the support in.
