I have a cake that I am doing for an event soon. I am doing a 12x18 half sheet (torted and filled) with a character cake on top? Should I use supports under the chaacter cake or do you think it is light enough to go straight on the sheet cake?

Some more info...the sheet cake is going to be made from a box mix because I simply do not make a decent scratch chocolate cake. The character cake is scratch butter cake. Both parts will be decorated in butter cream and the character is going to be off to one side.

I wouldn't go crazy with supports, just a few heavy duty lollypop sticks (like for cookie pops) or bubble tea straws should do the trick oh and make sure you have a cardboard or something under the top cake or your sticks will just go right through it. Good luck! icon_smile.gif
