no problem guys, what is it that you aren't sure about the second tier? let me know and i will try to help make it clearer!! but incase this may help: place each dowel in the bottom tier and mark so that your dowels will be flush/level with the cake remove and cut them then place back in the cake. moisten small dollops of fondant slightly and stick over the holes/dowels on the bottom cake, pipe on some RI so that the cake board of the upper tier will 'glue' itself the the lower tier. usinf the hole you have predrilled in the base of the cake board thread the upper tier over the support dowel an d lower it onto the bottom tier. try to hold the cake at the correct angle so that it threads straight and voila!

Hi I was just looking at all your other pics on Flick and they are just amazing. I was just wondering what gauge wire you use and also was wondering where you get buy you're supplies from? I'm in Australia and am trying to find some good local suppliers.
Thanks icon_smile.gif

Thanks, I noticed on one of your cakes on Flickr you had balls threaded onto the wire and was curious as to what gauge it was. I will check out Carolines thanks. I get bits and pieces from spotlight but they are very slack at keeping there shelves stocked. Sorry for asking so many questions but i'm new to this and there is so much to lears.
Thanks again.

I'll be sure to check this out! I plan on doing one for my daughter's 3rd birthday in July. She asked for a pink cake, and I told her that I'll make her a crazy pink cake. She asks me to make it for her all the time.

I have 1 question:
Can you give me your recipe for a sturdy cake, that actualy tastes good?
and also the recipe for the ganache, they always say is just chocolate and cream but there are sooooo many kinds of chocolates that it confuses me.
Thanx again.

hi patty, any good mudcake or pound cake i think you call it? is fine (sorry if i told you my recipe i would have to kill you lol!!) ganache is easy, cooking chocolate melted mixed with cream at a ratio of 2:1 (2 x choc to 1x cream) leave to cool until the cosistency od whipped cream or BC to use on the cake
