I know this has been covered plenty of times but I haven't found exactly what I wanted to know, so here goes!
I'm making a 2 tier sponge cake.. I need to support it with dowels right? Can i used wooden dowels? How thick do they need to be? I've seen people use what looked like hard plastic tubes/straws, insert them into tier 1 and cut them.
Also, I'm assuming you can't just sit the 2nd tier on, it needs to be on something.. but what? Think I've read somewhere about a piece or card/cardboard? If you use something will it not leave a gap between the tiers?
Thanks in advance for any advice. Its much appreciated as always :)
Just remembered to say, its a 8 & 6" square cake, how many dowels will i need. Ta :)
