I have been asked to make a cake in the shape of a pint of beer for an 18th birthday but I'm not sure how to get the shape. More importantly, I'm not sure how to make it stable. I presume I would stack mini cakes on top of each other but I'm fairly new to cake making and haven't yet completely mastered the art of dowels etc so need some advice.
Would I need one dowel through the centre or several between the tiers seperated by a cake board? Also, how would I cover in sugarpaste? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
More info is always more helpful, and you haven't provided enough specifics as to what you'd like to accomplish.
