Hi all, I am new to this site, Just a home Baker at the moment for family. I am going to attempt making a two tier cake for my sister's Birthday, 8inch and 6inch. Just wanted to know the cake board you use for the 6inch cake to rest on, is it a normal thin cake board?
Also would I need to stick a long dowel road down the middle, even though the cake will not be travelling? I know I will still have to put dowel's in the 8inch cake, just confused about the long middle one.
Would appreciate your help.
Correct, you shouldn't need a dowel down the middle. I have never used one for any of my tiered cakes, actually, but they never leave home. =) But you will need dowels in that bottom tier to hold up the 6".
Well, I take that back, a few have left home, but never went far, so I didn't dowel. =)
Thank You Mary, I will post it up, hopefully it wont be too much of a disaster :)
Thank you for helping me.. think I would have struggled with the middle longer dowel but no need to now :)
