When constructing a 4 tier wedding cake, can I place the cakes directly on top of each other or should I use a cake board in between each layer?

Each level of a tiered cake needs dowel rods for support. If you are stacking your cakes direclty on top of  one other, place an additional center dowel rod to prevent shifting. Below is the link to step by step stacking instructions.
