I'm trying to make a peanut M&M cake. I saw others in the gallery that used two halves of the egg pan. I've just ruined two cakes. Everytime I try to stank it up, the two halves break apart. Any help will be appreciated.

Are you cutting the bottom (round side) off of one of the halves so that it sits flat?

Sorry, I can't help you, but maybe some of the experts can. Good luck!

ok so the bigggiv you is to 'glue (BC or ganache etc) the two sides together laying down trim what will be the base so it will lay flat then angle skewers in so that they join the two side together (so when standing the skewers will run from the top of one side to the bottom of the other side) do this on a few differnt angles and that will hold ot all together, if you are still worried bend a piece of florists wire (covered wire) in a U shape an insert at op to hold two pieces together. once this is all done then stand it up and it should not tip or colapse at all. cover as normal, if giving to someone ensure they know how many skewers and wires you inserted and tell tem to rmove before serving (pretty obviouse i know but some people are well, less intelligent lol!!)

Thank you so much for your reply. It did the trick. Luckily I had skewers on hand. Peanut M&M stood up and the birthday girl loved the cake.
