    If the dowel rods are placed into the proper spaces on the plate, then the next plate is on the dowel sticks it will stand for as long as the cake actually lasts.

    plate - 2 layer cake - plate on top of cake - risers - plate -2 layer cake - plate - risers - plate - final 2 layer cake

    dowels need to be cut exactly the depth of the cake so they fit into the plate properly. This is to prevent the tower from sinking!
