Dowels are essential for stacking cakes securely! Most round cakes need at least 3 in each tier, square cakes need at least 4 in each tier. Make sure to cut your dowels so they are just flush with the top of your iced cake. Done correctly, the weight of the upper tiers should rest mostly on the dowels below, not on the bottom cake.
Wooden dowels are the traditional choice, and can be cut to size with a hacksaw. We also offer a choice of plastic dowels.
