that's basically the question: what is the best way to secure plastic martini glass on top of two tiered cake? I know that I can probably just sit it on top, but... I know the cake is going to be moved probably quite a bit before it's final place, and don't trust the host to have much common sense. The last thing I would want is for it to take a tumble and take icing and some cake with it from the lower tiers. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance, P
I would use royal icing to secure the martini glasses.
or melted chocolate
How would you do that with Royal? The way I'm thinking the glass will be attached to the icing but not the cake itself, so the problem still remains. I'm sorry, I'm having hard time imagining it, can you give me a little more details?
how did you ice your cake, buttercream or fondant?
and the martini glass bottom is flat and clear?
it's clear but somewhat indented, not quite flat
i dont think there is anyway for you to attach it to the actual cake... i was thinking of glueing something like a candy stick to the bottom of the martini glass and then sticking into the cake, but if its clear then you would see the stick... i think your gonna have to just cross your fingers and stick it to the buttercream with either royal icing or melted chocolate in the same color as your buttercream... just pipe it directly onto the rim of the bottom of the martini glass...
I am stumped though.... maybe someone else will have another idea... and if something else comes to mind, I will definately post it...
Just spread melted chocolate or RI around the rim of the bottom, not too much and stick it on the cake, after is sets up, it should hold just fine.
Thank you all so much. I guess that would have to do. This cake is not due till next week, so if I'll think of something else, I'll definitely post it as well for the next person who may be looking for this answer.
Thanks again, P
