Hi everyone! I have to do a farmyard theme cake and was going to use the stand up house pan for the barn on top of a sheet cake. My dilema is how do you keep the house standing up while in transit? To me the cake looks too narrow to have dowels running through it...wouldn't it split the cake? I've seen this pan used on a lot of different cakes on this website so I'm sure someone has experience with this. Thanks for any help you can give!

I"ve used this pan before, but I made two cakes and put them togehter standing up. It made it more stable. I"m not sure how it would stand well with just one cake.

I'll try to add a pic - not sure if I know how, tho.... I ran 3 dowels down through it. I only had to drive about 5 miles, but it made the trip just fine, and stayed put until it was cut. I used WASC for the density.

I'm with darandon. I always bake two and place them back to back. Then, drive a couple of sharpened dowels through each side, into the base board.
