Hello! I have a baptism cake to do today and there is a Wilton cross topper (which I have seen on some of your cakes) it is very heavy, and has two small holes in the bottom. How do I put this on the cake and have it be secure? I tried sticking two tooth picks in it, but the holes are actually too tiny. Any suggestions? Do I just pop it on there? I'll probaboy dowel it with a straw.. but help please! Thank youicon_smile.gif

I would definitely cut a cardboard to go under the cake topper, and dowel under it. The cardboard can be covered with icing or sunk ever so slightly into the icing on the top tier. I always try to err on the safe side. HTH.
