I always use them for tiers and in this weather, it would certainly be advisable.

yes!

Basically if you are doing a tier cake you need dowels and cake boards.

I'm afraid you do, even though its a sponge cake you need to put your 2nd tier on the same size cake card, then dowel the cake and put the cake on top secured down by some royal icing also.

Is it a proper tier cake or just a sandwich cake?
