I am going to be making a cake like this for Easter Weekend
And was wondering if I was to stack 3 - 2 inch high cakes plus the half ball pan on top should I be putting dowels in the bottom two cakes and then having the remaining layer and the half ball cake on another cake board or can they just all be stacked together? I hope that makes sense....
Also, I am not sure what size cakes would go best with the half ball pan, as I do not have it yet. I'm going to be using either daffodils or daisies for the flowers if that makes a difference. Any help is appreciated.
i would stack the 3 2" layers dowel this. place the ball cake on a card board. this looks like an 8" round cake with the ball pan cake on top. doweling the bottom 3 layers. will support all the weight of the ball pan cake and flowers. hth
Anything over 2 layers needs a support system. The sports ball fits well on a 6" cake.
I agree. The top round and ball need to be supported. The Wilton sports ball has a 6 inch diameter.
Perfect! Thanks everyone !!
Will I have to put a dowel through the center of the entire cake since it is all one width?
Will you be moving it?
Yes it will be going from my house to my parents....about a 15 minute (bumpy) drive. I am nervous about it being tall....lol
Then I would put a dowel through it into the bottom board.
