Tomorrow I have to transport a cake that is 3 tiers - bottom is a 12 inch cake dummy so no worries there. Middle tier is a 10 inch and top tier is an 8 inch. There is a little mickey mouse ears thing on top of that but I wouldn't really call it a tier (it's enough cake for a slice or 2). I'm comfortable with the dowels in each tier. My husband is driving so I can have eyes on the cake at all times but I'm still nervous. I think it needs a center dowel and I even thought ahead to put holes through the centers of all the cake boards. Now I'm hesitating. There is something freaky about standing there and driving a spike through all your work. LOL! Are there any tips or things I should be aware of? Or is the center dowel overkill all together?
