- 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.
- Cake pillars and dowel rods should be positioned evenly and it is advisable to prepare a pattern to ensure the correct layout.
- They can be cut down to size easily and the diameter of the top fits support plates perfectly.
