How to assemble a wedding cake using dowelling rods and polystyrene cake spacers or cake pillars.
It’s best to assemble the cake at the venue, the morning before the event.
-Place the largest cake onto a cake drum or cake stand and tie with ribbon, if using.
-Dowelling rods are used to provide stability to a cake so that you can stack several layers on top of each other. Place a cake disc into the middle of the cake and mark four points around the edge with a knife. Push a dowelling rod into the cake at one of the points and mark where it reaches the top of the cake.
- Cut the rod and three others to the same length and insert them into the cake at each of the four points.
-You can then stack the cakes directly on top of each other, or use a polystyrene cake pillar.
