The ceramic kind. Do you put a board ontop of the top tier or perhaps a gumpaste plaque for them to sit on? what ways do you secure them.? I have a fairly large cross, about 7" tall but only has a 2-3" base. Im thinking i will make a large gp plaque and somehow attach it to that. The cake is covered in buttercream. I would hate to see it fall over. There is not much weight to it, but with a small base that can still make a difference. should i put straws in for support?
If it's hollow, I put a skewer into the cake and leave it sticking up, then put the topper over the skewer. Otherwise, then a bunch of icing onto the base and wish everyone luck.
thanks Leah. They should really make cake toppers with spikes, ones that could be removed after the fact. I expect i willhave to glue it down with icing too.
