I'm doing a groom's cake for a dear friends wedding in a couple weeks. She wants it to be a waterski. I figure I can carve it okay to shape, but she wants it at an angle and spraying "water" from the back/side. Any suggestions on how to keep it at an angle without falling would be greatly appreciated. Also any suggestions on the "water" would be great as well. It is going to be red velvet cake and buttercream only. TIA!

Did you see the last episode of Cake Boss? He did the Leaning Tower of Pisa and made it lean. Anyway, he had built the cake straight on a board. They set that cake on another board. Then they stuck a wedge in between the board on top and the board on the bottom. Then they put another board over it so that they could screw it all together. It will be on TLC at 10:30 on Monday. If it's not too late, you should watch it. It might help you out.
