I have an 8" and a 12" dummy covered with fondant that I need to stack. What do I use to hold them together? I was thinking maybe a little royal icing...would that work? I need some suggestions here!! TIA

Royal works great...piping gel works.... you can drive a stake down the middle...

since I didn't want to put any holes in mine I used RI and it worked great.

Toothpicks. What I used for my competition 4 tier dummy setup. And travelled 3 hours twice with it.

I actually just added water on bottom of top tier and 'stuck' to bottom with no problems. Traveled hours without any mishap.

i have taken dowel rods sharpened to a point on both ends and set equally into both cakes . after use and ready to make new comes apart very easily icon_smile.gif

i insert a skewer straight throught the center of the bottom tier and then stack them that way with RI to secure, that way they are dead on center, my dummies come with a cmall hole throught the centers from when they were cut so i utelise this to make them precise icon_smile.gif
