Yep you need dowels and dont forget the cake cards for the cake to sit on adds stability which you need.

You need dowelling rods (from a cake decorating shop) to stop the top layers crushing the bottom. Other than that there's nothing difficult about doing tiers.

I'm making dd a castle cake, ideally I'd like to do one small cake on top of a base square cake. What's the easiest way to do it so it doesn't just crumble into a big mess? Is it even achievable given that I'm a very crap novice cake maker?
