Hi, I have just joined as a member, however, I have enjoyed helpful posts here for a long time. I need help with stacking tiers properly. I have used straws, which doesnt seem to be too sturdy to me unless I use a large amount of them. I don’t like using so many straws, as it seems a mess to have that many holes in a cake. I recently started using plastic dowels. My problem is cutting them the right height and cutting them straight. Can someone please share the correct way to measure the height of the dowels? Should they be just below or even with the layer of icing OR even with the cake itself? Also, how do you get them even all the way around? What cutting tool do you use. I use a serrated knife…the results are ugly I tell ya.
