For 4th of July I plan on making a cake with these sides It will have red velvet cake and white chocolate mousse layers. But I'm not sure how to make sure the sides stay attached to the bottom cake layer?? Do I just add a layer of mousse between the sides and cake? Should I add layer of buttercream? Any Ideas? TIA!! icon_biggrin.gif

Idea from a hobbyist, i have never done this before, but i would just attach it with a layer of mousse....but thats just what i would try.. play with it...make a practice cake and see if it would work, if it dont work it was just a practice cake and you can try again....practice it on a cheap box cake mix though... that way your not out much..

did you see this from her blog?

show that it's the mousse and the topping (chilled until firm) that hold it all together.
