Hi, so I agreed to make my sisters wedding cake in August. It was originally supposed to be just one top cutting tier and then a bunch of cupcakes. I figured easy peazy. Things have now changed big time and I'm kind of starting to freak out; she now wants a 4 tiered cake, which I've never done (only as many as 2 tiers).
So a couple questions I have:
1.) The venue is allowing me to set up completely the night before and leave it fully assembled in their fridge, but I don't know if the gum paste flowers will hold up in the fridge, should I leave them off until the day of?
2.) Any tips for supports? I usually use bubble straws and cake plates, will that be strong enough? I'm just a hobbiest so I'm not willing to invest in the sps system
3.) I'm planning on putting in a centre dowel, but I don't know where you can get one? What does everyone use for their centre dowels?
PS I am the maid of honour so there is VERY little I will be able to do the day of
