I have an order for a mad scientist beaker cake..What would you suggest I make the neck from?
I want it to be sturdy so it doesn't fall over
build this kind of base cutting dowel 1" shy of total height of neck.
form RKT around it.
could do a much thinner dowel that only needs to be hammered and glued into a smaller hole. (tho' I might shoot a brad type nail up through bottom for extra measure after dowel was in hole)
Thanks Doug..I thought about hammering a dowel down through but I didn't want to split the RKT..What do you think about a cardboard tube like a paper towel roll? Sounds cheesy I know or a light weight plastic tube?
One thing you could do is hammer in the dowel & then form the RKT around the dowel after it's secured.
