How to Make a Two Tier Cake without Dowels?

A two-tier cake without dowels can be a challenging and time-consuming task, but it is possible. If you’re looking for an excuse to practice your icing technique or trying to find a way to save money by not buying dowels for that special cake, here are some tips to make the process go as smoothly as possible:



– Have patience and practice – The more cakes you make and get comfortable with this method, the better you will become at making these types of cakes. Out of all the cakes I have ever made, I still consider my first attempt at a two-tier cake without dowels to be one of the best ones I’ve ever made.

-You may have to place a dowel in the bottom tier, put icing around it and then let it dry before placing the top tier on – This will keep the cake from sliding off of the bottom tier as you move it into position for icing.

-Do not ice or decorate until after you have transferred both tiers onto your serving plate, iced and decorated them with flowers and other decorations, etc. To do so beforehand would guarantee disaster!

ENJOY! You can even try some fun designs like having one fondant-covered tier and another iced one…the possibilities are endless! Just remember to take your time, be patient, and most importantly…enjoy yourself!! Happy baking!
