Stacking cake layers

by Maggie
(Nashville, TN)

I am going to attempt my first wedding cake (just a trial run). I would like 2-3 square layers stacked, no dowels, basically no height between the layers. I am using a foam board under each layer. Do I need to do anything else?

Hi Maggie,

Foam board is good for the main cake board, but you will still need dowels to support the top tier, particularly for a wedding cake. I would recommend cardboard cake rounds in between the tiers.

I wouldn't take the chance of anything collapsing for such an important occasion.
