Wedding Cake with pillars

Hi fellow Cakers :-)

Please could you help me?

I am making a four tier cake which is being stacked with pillars

I am using four pillars per cake (square cakes)…am I able to simply place a dowel through each pillar? It doesn’t seem llike enough support for the cakes, I don’t want it to tumble down!

ANY tips you have would be much appreciated

I’m doing a four tier next month. I’m going to YouTube before I stack. As a rule I would use 5 dowels in the bottom tier, 4 in the next and 3 in the next. I’ve seen Americans use a thick dowel and screw it into the base board and lower all the cakes over it. I’d still use dowels in between the layers to help hold it up… Good luck
