Hi, i have only ever done a 2 tier stacked cake but i have to a 3 tier stacked one and i have just relised im not sure how to do the dowling ,could someone tell me how to do the dowls please
It's the same as two, just add your rods to the 2nd layer as you did the first to keep from caving in. I also take a long Wilton wooden rod and measure it, trim the end in a pencil sharpener and spike it though the cake. Just remember any layer that is going to have another layer on top NEEDS rods, pillars or something to stabilize it. Good luck!!! 4 tiers will be next!!!!
Thanks depster, for your quick reply, no way doing a 4 tier im not that confident thanks again. this is a brilliant forum
The only difference between 2 & 3 tier is that you are increasing the total weight on the bottom tier, so the more tiers the more dowels you will need in the lower tiers to carry that wieght. Every tier that carries the weight of another tier needs a support structure.
Oyster.................... before you know it you'll do a 4 then a 5 then a 7 on and on. (Smiles) Take care.
