How to properly stack a three tiered wedding cake?
(Farmington, NM USA)
My name is Kim and I am making a three tiered wedding cake this weekend. My cakes are already made and in the freezer ready to frost. I am using buttercream frosting. The bride wants the layers stacked directly on top of each other so I am not using any pillars. I bought wooden dowells to put in the layers to stabilize the cake but my question is after I frost each layer how many dowells do I put in, and then do I also use round cake circles to set on top of the frosted dowell layer to make the cake more stable? I have taken the first three Wilton cake decorating classes, and have experience making birthday cakes, however I have never made a tiered cake of this nature. Any help or advice would be appreciated! (:
P.S. The layers are as follows: 12 in. 2 layer, 10 in. 2 layer, and then 8 in. 2 layer
