My sister and I are wanting to try and cover all of the Dec. birthdays in our family when we all get together at Christmas.
I was thinking a tier for each starting with oldest my mom, then making a basketball with wilton ball pan for my nephew then on top of those two more smaller cakes for my younger nieces.
Have you guys done anything like this or stacked on top of a ball pan cake? How did you dowel? Anything else in particular that I should think about?
I would slice off a thin piece from the top of the ball so the next tier would set more level on top of it. I would also place the dowels in the four "corners" of this sliced off section to give more balanced support of the top tiers.
Good luck! It sounds like it's going to be a very fun cake
I didn't even think about slicing off some from the top!! Thanks that's perfect because the cake to go on top would be square.
