First time 2 Tier ~ Drunk Barbie

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I am VERY new to the baking world but got super hooked after I made my little girls 1st birthday cake
(I didn't make the topper - not that brave!)
Anyways I now want to my this but in a 2 tier version, I have the dowels (which I got 12 inch) and know I need card but I'm stuck on sizing!! An I right with 10" bottom & 6" top? Also thinking to get thickness I will need to double up, so cake - spread mascarpone / cream & jam - cake? Then repeat for top tier? Just worried that's not right, any advice would be much appreciated xxxxx

I'm confused. Is the cake of drunk Barbie or at you Barbie & happen to be drunk?

The most common 2 tier is a 6" & 10". I also offer a 6" & 8".

I'm not sure what you mean about spreading marscapone. Do you mean torting & filling? My tiers are 2 2" cakes which are torted & filled. The end up being 4" tall.

I'm also confused about your dowels. You mentioned 12" dowels. You will need support between the tiers even if you use a long center dowel that goes between both. The support will need to be dowels on the bottom tier, plate or board then top tier.

Hope this helps.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

That's how confused I am, I can't even begin to properly explain what I want haha! Thank you for responding ! The drunk Barbie is an idea I got from a friend who found this picture on the Internet
I liked the idea but had already decided in a pink 2 tier cake. The mascarpone / jam is the filling - i practiced my cake last night, I have no idea of the sizes but I made the 2 sponges added filling and then done the same to the top tier. I have bought 12in dowel (plastic sticks to me) which were way to big so I chopped them to size. To be honest everything was to big, you could hardly see the difference in my top tier and as I wanted pink frosting rather than icing it looks messy icon_sad.gif here is take 1: (be kind I'm very new to this)

Thanks so much for your comments icon_smile.gif xx
