help! am making a hockey cake and was excited about making a hockey skate to go on the cake. had a pattern to follow. made it out of rice krispie treats, covered with fondant. looks pretty good. the problem is it is huge--size of a real skate, and very heavy. my plan was to put it on top of a cake, but this thing is so heavy i don't think there's any way to do that. now i have a giant rice krispie treat and no cake. any suggestions? thank you

I don't know exactly how big it is, or how big the base cake is, but I would think that you could put dowels the lower cake to support the skate. You may have to put some sort of plate under the skate, though.

What is your cake is it made to look like ice rink, could you lean the skate up against the cake?? I know with 2 kids in hockey I am quite used to seeing skates undone and leaning up against things. Good luck I would love to see pics when your done cause I'm always looking for hockey ideas

Maybe instead of making a hockey cake to go with the skate, you should make a hockey stick out of cake. Or just lay the skate next to the hockey cake instead of placing it on the cake.

I just looked at your pics and you did a tennis bag, could you do a hockey bag and lean the skate up against it

IF you put long skewers into the bottom of the skate, you can then push the skewers through the cake and into the cake board (if you are using a foam core or cardboard cake drum) and then the skate will be supported by the skewers and not even really resting on the cake at all. I have done this with other skates and cleats I have made that sit inside a cake duffle bag. If I had put them directly on the cake they would have crushed it - amazing how heavy those things get!!

thank you all for these good ideas. the cake was going to be a round cake with the skate on top. i was going to make a pair of sticks criss crossing across the front of the cake with a penguins emblem in the middle. the penguins emblem is pretty simple--triangle shape, penguin head on top, maybe the cake could be in the shape of that emblem. what do you think?

thank you, millermom,

i realized that i would have to make a very big cake to go under that very big skate. since we didn't need that much cake opted to put the skate beside it. my son loved it. thanks to all for the help!
