Assembling the wedding cake tiers

With the icing decoration finished you will now need to fix the pillars.

Using a ruler make sure the distance between them is even.
I am using four 3 1/2 inch round silver pillars.

Push a dowel into each of the pillars and mark level with the top of the pillar.

Cut the dowels using a dowel cutter or a small sharp knife.

The pillars should now look as shown, with the dowels pushed neatly into the cake and leveled with the tops of the pillars.

Place your cake top onto the top tier and fix with a little icing.

Place the top tier on top of the pillars as shown.

The edges of the boards have been trimmed with white ribbon and a thinner ribbon to match the cake top decoration ribbon.
