So I think I'm going to try to do an alien spacecraft/flying saucer cake. My question is how? Does the bottom need to be fake or will it stand up under the weight of the top layer. I don't have the galleries to look at right now with website updates so I need some assistance here. Also, I wanted to do a glass bubble on top. Is there a way to make this edible? I've never done any sugar stuff, so I'm not sure how difficult this would be.

Also, if anyone has any pics they can post here in this message, that would be great too. I need to get her a price but want to figure out what I'm doing first.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

You may want to pm Doug. He seems to be the one who can explain how to construct 3D cakes.

Here's one I did a while back...I stacked 3 10 inch cakes and did lots of carving to get the angles arched just right.. I iced the cake in butter cream icing ,and I used a lid from a fountain drink for the dome and fondant for the rest of decorations ....since I did this cake and had such a time doing all the carving and battling the crumbs mixing in the icing, I came across a nice round bowl that will be perfect if I ever have to do another one...
