I am making a soccer ball cake that I am not sure how to securely stack. It is a 3D soccer ball (wilton pan), on top of an 8" round, on top of a 10" round. What would be the best way to secure this? The birthday party is Saturday, however I baked the cake tonight (Wed) and will decorating tomorrow for a Friday delivery. (I am going out of town).
Also, will the cake be okay boxed or should I try to find a fridge?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!
I would definitely do a middle dowel through all three tiers to hold the ball cake on well.
From the bottom, here's what I suggest:
12" or 14" cake board covered (2-3 thicknesses of cardboard)
10" cake (with dowels in)
8" cake circle
8" cake (with dowels in)
soccer ball cake on trimmed cake circle**
center dowel all the way through
**You'll probably have to cut a little off the bottom of the cake to make it sit flat.
I would definately assemble on site.
I don't think you will need to refridgerate. Just cover it loosely in plastic wrap or put it in a box and it should be just fine.
