Hi, I have to make a Birthday cake with an Amazing race theme, they would like a globe on top of it. It will be a 2 tier cake with the ball on top.
My question is, how sturdy is this cake, I am going to put fondant on the globe. The Wilton pan isn't too big so I think it should be ok. Also how do you think I should support the globe on top? Any help with tis would be greatly appreciated. Thanks thumbs_up.gif

I would drive a dowel rod down through the globe after you have gotten it on top of the second tier.That will hold it on so it doesn't roll off.

Thanks for your response, I have never done that before and I am a bit nervous, do you put the dowel right through all the layers? Also this may be stupid but how would it go through the cake boards icon_biggrin.gif

Yes...right down through them all so you will have to use cardbaord instead of plastic seperaters.You sharpen the end like a pencil so it will poke through the cardbaords..use a small hammer to do this...
