I am making an upright tombstone cake....I baked two 1/2 sheet cakes and I am planning to cut each one into three sections and stack them all on top of each other ....I intend to do the stacking/support similar to this


I am just really worried it is going to fall over during transportation. It will be about 11 inches wide, 4 inches deep and 12 inches tall.

I have done a tall cake before (the Dr.Seuss one in my photos, which was 10inches tall)

Does this sound like It is going to go okay or should I switch gears now?

like this? http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1424092.html

then I'd do this using a wood base:


(could even do two -- one near each end)


are you covering it in fondant?

might you be able to lay it down on it's backside during delivery and then tip up into place?

I seriously need to learn how to construct things like that...Or get my husband to work less and help me icon_smile.gif
