I received an order for a 3D Roller Skate cake. . .and there are soo many cute ones posted here on CC. Problem is. . .I just don't know how one supports the cake so it looks like it's standing on the wheels. Any suggestions? TIA!

variation of how you do a car or truck to get the off the ground look -- just adapt shape of board to shape of shoe.

added benefit -- board can be thicker -- like the sole of the shoe -- and then you can do a dowel that is glued and screwed into the board to support the cake even more solidly

in this case, I'd suggest a solid block to support and then use that to hold axles and attach wheels to axles.


of course -- if the cake didn't need to be "that" big -- I just might hit a thrift shop or similar, buy a real pair of skates, cut the boot off of one (or both for double the cake) and then superglue the wheels so they couldn't spin, glue to a support board, cover the remaining shoe base with something sanitary and build the cake on that --- or just remove the trucks (axles and wheels) from the shoes and attach to a masonite or MDF board and build the cake on that.
