Please help my best friend asked me to make her wedding cake. Ive done a couple but never really used dowels or tiers... i cant seem to figure these cakes out and thats what she wants
anyone know how they stack these cakes what materials they use?
You can do it one of two ways (that I know of):
1. Use pillars a couple of inches taller than the layer below to leave a gap; or
2. Use a foam block as a separater that is several inches less wide than the layer above it (i.e. the layer of cake on top is 8", use a 4" wide block of foam).
One of two ways and very easy as at that.
You know the cakes with shorter versions of this style:
- and the flowers cover the spacers
or regular short columns and the flowers cover the empty space, like this (but the colums will have to inside more
or even a shorter single pole as in this cake (my wedding cake)
Thanks everyone for the help! i bought the foam ( guessing im going to use dowels etc) but i also treated myself to the wilton crystal clear separator set hoping that its the most solid choice ... im going to test try top two levels
if anyone has used them let me know
p.s lovely wedding cake "tryingcake"
Can't wait to see what you end up doing.
