. . . that cake is actually by one of our members . . . and I'm pretty sure there was an explanation of how she did it . . . I'll see if I can find it . . .
It looks to me like there will be a dowel through both cakes. the middle cake definatley have a dowel into the bottom one and depending how big the top cake is a smaller dowel to hold it in place along with some icing.

The thread says the instructions are posted in the forum, but when I went to her posts, I can't get past the first page.
Can anyone bring up the link to that thread where the instructions are?
. . . I found the previous thread . . . here it is . . . http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=270693&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0 . . . and this is the answer in a nut shell . . . the doughnut was so easy and i think was everyone's favorite part, just shaped the rice crispies into a doughnut-shape and covered in fondant. the "cone" was three 6 inch cakes stacked with a 7 inch cake (on its own cakeboard) sitting on top. the "ice-cream" cake was baked in in a bowl and i used leftover scraps of rice crispies (squeezed them into ball) and added them going around the bottom to give the "apperance" of the ice-cream overlapping over the cone. the "cupcake" was done in the same manner. the bottom of the cupcake was just three 8 inch cakes carved and stacked. i used several wooden rods wrapped in plastic wrap down the center so it would survive the trip to my parents. i hope that made sense! if not, let me know!
wow, I just wanted to say...........can you just IMAGINE driving with that thing fully assembled!! Talk about nerves of steel!! yikes!!
