I am new to this website, and am not sure if this is the place that I need to post my question, but I am getting married in August and I am making my own wedding cake. I am really excited about this because I love to bake and cook! I went out and bought the square cake pans (which are 8, 12, & 16 inch pans), cake boards (the cardboard pieces that you put under a layer of cake), and a pack of wooden dowels to help support the weight of the cake. Here's my dilema...I have never attempted to make a cake of this size, and have a slight problem. I want my cake layers to sit flush (and look like they are stacked on top of each other), with no plastic columns or anything separating the different cake layers (I only want the wooden dowels, which will be hidden in the cake, for support), but I have no idea how to do this without completely messing up the icing in between the layers, when taking the cake layers apart for cutting. I hope this is making sense If anyone has any advice or tips I would greatly appreciate it!!!
