Ok I am wondering how to support a 3d duck cake that will be on top of a 12' round cake. It is going to be travelling about an hour away. So I just need to know how I would support it properly so that it will make it to the destination

Thanks!!

Here is a image about what I am talking about... this is not my image but it is very similar to what I want to do:

I did one for my brother-in-law's birthday. I doweled it similar to a regular tiered cake-a larger dowel through the biggest part of the duck and a smaller dowel through the head and body. I only drove it 30 min, but lots of hills.

I also made a duck cake. Dowel thru the head to help hold it in place. Customer drove it about 45 minutes and it held up fine.
