I'm going to be making a similar cake this week:
I made all of the next generation star trek cast members, and planets(they are all very mini: characters and planets)
Now I have no idea where to place them or what to do with them! I also have to write happy b-day on the cake board.
If anyone has ideas for placement that would be greatly appreciated!!!
stand them up along the side on the top of the cake
Make your cake board large enough to accomodate all your figures plus the birthday message. You could cover it in black paper or fondant and dot it with stars.
Add a bottom tier that all your figures can be placed on and add the writing all around the side?
Agree with DianeLM.
