I have to start making a sitting spongebob today!!! I am ok in the actual baking a decorating part but just a bit confused as to weather it needs to be dowelled and supported half way through.
I am going to be baking 2 9x13 madiera cakes and cutting each into 3 equal parts so in total there will be 6 layers the customer wants the filling to be buttercream and strawberry jam also i will be covering the whole cake in fondant.
If it does need to be dowelled and supported how would i go about doing this? Please help asap. xxx
Wow...let's see, are they eventually going to be approx. 9 x 4 stacked 6 high? I would dowel in at least 3 different places, all the way through the board each time. I thought about doing a sitting one and changed my mind and did a small 50/50 version sitting down on cake for back support. I would also do the supports with one towards upper left corner, in approx. 2", one towards middle bottom, and the other toward right corner, each in approx. 2". They will play against each other instead of being in a straight line across the middle of the cake. It may help.
