I'm planning to try just a small tiered cake for my daughter's first birthday - I think two 9" rounds with a 6" round on top. Since this is barely tiered, I'm not sure if I'll need to use dowels for support, or whether I should put the 6" cake on a cake board to remove more easily. I will need to transport the cake, probably just about a 10 minute drive. I haven't picked a recipe but I'm looking at the vanilla recipe here: http://smittenkitchen.com.... (recipe suggestions very welcome too! I have a go-to chocolate cake but don't make yellow cake that often, and am not well versed in what holds up better for 3 or more layers). Many thanks for any advice!
