I am putting a cake topper on top of a 6 inch cake. Do I need to put dowels in to support the weight of the topper? The topper will be on the cake for a good three to four hours.
The picture below is what the cake topper looks like.

Thanks so much!!

If I were you, I would put some dowels just for security.

By the picture is hard to know how big or how heavy it is.

Go ahead and use dowels just for peace of mind. Good luck! icon_smile.gif

If that is the Wilton plastic topper you don't need any support.

Use drinking straws as your at each end....again, I don't think you need it but as others have said....just for peace of mind use them?)
