When creating any multi-tiered cake it is essential to consider the engineering as well as the presentation. Although not usually visible most cakes will require additional support e.g. dowel rods, hidden or hollow pillars to obtain the effect required. Cakes stacked without support will most likely sag or collapse. Cake pillars and dowel rods should be positioned evenly and it is advisable to prepare a pattern to ensure the correct layout. The number required may vary according to the cake shape and size.
This fantastic pack of Easy Cut Dowels, from PME, are great for additional support and are really easy to use! Simply ensure that each tier is placed on a cake board or cake drum before assembly. You can then push the dowel down into the cake on the board. These Easy Cut Dowels can be cut with scissors or a craft knife to the required length. They will fit any cake height.
