1- I'm stacking a 4 tier cake (10' 8' 6' 4 (mickey ears) and i have the wilton plastic dowel rods. Now they are "opened " in the center and as I'm making my "practice cake" I had no idea as to what to do next... do i take the cake out of the center of the dowel? do i wash the dowel after taking it out of the cake after being marked or does it matter?
2) I am stacking the cake at the location (its an hr drive), do i still need to dowel the center of the entire cake? or should that be skipped since the cake will be at the location?
thank you ladies in advance!!
