I know this is probably a basic question, forgive me for asking but this is something I havent learned yet.
How do you support cake toppers? I have a cake topper to go on a buttercream frosted cake. The bottom of it is an odd shape. Do I cut a board for it or something? Maybe just some dowels? How many dowels should I use? Honestly if I didnt ask anyone I probably would just shove 3 or 4 dowels down in the center of the cake and let the topper sit on that, but I just dont want the cake to be cut into and everyone sees I did an unprofessional job. So what is the proper way to do this?
Also, I have seen people use candleholders as separators. How are these supported? They always look as if they are resting on the cake without a board. So maybe just use the dowels and set it on top? What if the bottom of it is concave (SP?), can it be used or must it be flat?
Like I said sorry Im sure this is basic, and honestly Im sure I could wing something, but I just dont want to do anything that doesnt appear to be professionally done.
I generally cut a board to the exact size of the topper and support it with a few dowels or straws. Same with candlesticks.
same here a bord and dowels
Excuse me, pls. What are candlesticks? Thnx.
