Im making a bucket of beer, ill use one 8" round and 2 9" round then carve it slightly, ice and cover in fondant top with 'ice and beer'
Im worried the cake will fall over due to the cake being smaller at the bottom and wider at the top


1. WIll the 8" and two 9" cake support themselves? Or do i have to split them up and support them? For example - place the 8" and one 9" together then put dowels through them and add the other 9" with the ice and bottles (RKT) on top? OR stack all the cakes then place dowels through them to support the ice and bottles? (bottles made out of RCT)

2. HOW do i make ice with gelitan so it tastes good and keeps its form

3. How do i make ice with sugar? (keep in mind i have never made anything with sugar before )

I think you should be fine with the three layers. I would support the bottles if they seem too heavy to you.

For ice i would buy white rock candy.

I order rock candy from my local candy store. Do you have a place around you? And it really isn't white, its the clear stuff. There is usually a candy store in the malls and they might be able to order it for you, or they may already stock it. Otherwise do a search for candy stores, but be prepared you may end up with some porn sites. I know i searched on time for a rock candy recipe and was shocked at what came up. I imagine that candy store may pull up some of the same results.
