??? I just have a quick question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm planing on making a 2 tier caked this weekend. The first round cake will be a 12 inch cake and then the second will be a 10 inch round cake on top of it.. I was just going to have a plastic round board on top of the 12 innch to help support the 10 inch round cake (have it be right under the 0 inch cake), is this Ok or do I need to use dowels?

Thanks so much

I'm sure someone else will also have advise, but I am willing to say that the 10 in would be too heavy on the 12 in cake. I'd support it just to be sure...it is a wedding cake and you'd be horrified to find that one fell into the other! HTH

You will need dowels to keep the top tier from sinking into the bottom tier. Not sure what type of plastic plate you are using. Is it the Wilton plate with the legs? if so the dowels go under the legs. A flat plate won't matter as long as the dowels are evenly positioned . I would use four. Just make sure they are all the same height.

yes, I was going to buy the Wilton white plastic plate w. the legs, so for the dowels, I have seen them in the store.. I just put them in the 12 inch cake, put the plastic plate on top of it and then the cake and that;s it correct?
The dowels wouldn't make the cake fall apart & spilt from where I put the dowels?

PS.. Thank you
