Hi - first time stacking 2 cakes. They are mud and quite low - do I need anything in between (like a board) or can I just use buttercream? I’m nervous the bottom will get squashed as they are heavier than I’d anticipated.

Hello sorry it took so long to get back to you —you posted in the late night here in the US   I see this is your first post on here as such you will not be able to reply to any post for about 30 days so if you want to comment on any post just start a new post referring to this one   Now to answer your question :  not sure if you are referring to “layers “ or “tiers”  since you mentioned putting buttercream in between   If you have 2cakes that you will use as one once put together then no board is used   If the 2 are used as 2 separate tiers then yes there needs to be a board & there needs to be dowels to support that one on top so it does not crush the  bottom one   You should check out the many YouTube videos on how to stack cakes to prevent a disaster!
