    That was brilliant but I have one question. Was there a hole already under the top ttier or did he just push the cake down onto the centre dowel?

      Center dowel is a metal rod fixed to the base with nuts I use also large plastic straw to protect the cake not touching to metal. There is another not just level with the top surface. Curd board base sitting on that nut. I used the long tube to cut out the holes all the way down till to the base and filled with chocolate. These chocolate dowels are not for carrying whole weight just to avoid sinking.
