How to use dowels

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I am about to do my first two tiered cake but not sure how to go about it?

 

I know I need a board and dowels but can anyone help what to do with them?

 

Thanks in advance!!

So the top tier goes on a board the same size as the cake, then buttercream/ganache then cover in fondant. Use dowels or bubble straws to support the bottom tier. Indent a board the same size as the top tier on the bottom tier and put your dowels within that. Usually a central one and 3-4 others. Trim to just above the fondant. Splodge some royal icing on top to secure. There's lots more detail re levelling cakes but ill assume you know that.
