If you feel that this will be too heavy, go with your gut instinct and use a support. Little cake circle cut out to their shape should do fine with the bubble tea straws or what you use under it. Better safe than sorry!!

Well, they probably won't sink, but if they're heavy, your bigger fear should be that they'll topple over.

Can you glue them with RI to a gumpaste plaque for stability? Or even a foamboard plaque at this late hour.

That way, if you think they're too heavy, you can insert dowels under the plaque.
