I am making a cake that will look like an upside down top hat with a person popping out. How do I make the brim? If I put a big cake ontop of a smaller one it will fall won't it? Any suggestions would help! Thanks!
I'm not sure but I think that I would use rice krispie treats for the brim I would think that it would be lighter sorry I wasn't more help.
Well, you can roll out some GP or fondant, and then cut your larger circle, and cut a smaller circle on the inside. Just make sure that it dries well (a day or two) before you stick it on there, or else it will sag.
You also CAN make a larger tier to go on top of smaller one. Just make sure that you have a carboard round underneath, that will keep the edges from sagging. Just frost your bottom tier on the sides, keeping the top unfrosted. put your larger round on top of a carboard circle, making sure to cut around it if the cardboard circle is bigger than the cake round. Ice the brim, and set on top of your bottom tier.
