For 4th of July I plan on making a cake with these sides http://confectionsofamasterbaker.blogspot.com/2010/02/ps-i-cake-you.html 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..

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