I would give this one a Silver.
I cut my support dowels too tall. The upper tier was resting more on the dowels than on the cake. So driving to New Orleans and our wonderful pot holed street here......... I knew it when I placed the dowels but stupid me thought it would be "ok"!!
When will I learn...... ugh.
Awwh, poor kid, that is the one drawback with the method some folks like to use here, the longer dowels. It might make it easier to place the cake and get their fingers out clean but this is the risk. I have had pals that had their cakes in place on a table, someone bumped the table and the cakes slid. One good reason for using a centre dowel.
But you know, sometimes we all take a chance and sometimes we are lucky!
