So I am going to make a violin cake and would like to prop up just one side off the cake board, not much just so that it is not laying totally flat. What do you use to make sure it does not slide? I plan on filling the cake too and that is what scares me the most is that the filling will make the cake slide, not so much the bottom of the cake itself (make sense?)

I think if you make a sturdy cake then it wouldn't slide. But I probably wouldn't transport it that way either. I made a lego cake for my sons' birthday party, once we got to Chuck E Cheese I leaned one lego onto the other. It was surprisingly sturdy given the angle it was in. It was covered in buttercream and there was a bit of fillings too. Didn't even look like it wanted to slide.
