hi, i will be doing my 2nd wedding cake this weekend. the cake will be a 2 tier cake, the bride's cake topper is a ceramic bride and group. my question is, how do I make sure the topper is secure on the cake? don't want the cake topper to fall into the cake.
I am thinking to add a circle cake board on the top of the 1 tier( under the fondant) will this help? thanks for your help!

I'd just put some skewers in the top tier to support the topper.

thanks for your input! icon_smile.gif the cake topper is a ceramic bride and groom, that i believe just sits right on top, not sure for added support if i should add a thin piece of cardboard? so the topper will sit on the cake without caving in?

I agree. Just insert some skewers into the cake, which will help support the topper. No cardboard circle on top is needed.

Is it that weeping willow thing? If so, one version of it is rounded and you'll need more than just skewers. (In my opinion, you need a whole different topper! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif ).

for heavy toppers, I've inserted skewers, then cut circle from a white styrofoam plate (or a clear plastic one) and placed on top of the skewers. The plate can be camo'd with icing flowers or iced over to be hidden.

thank you, I believe it's a cake topper from wilton, she was able to send me a pic of it. I will do as you suggested with a stryo plate and skewers.. praying it goes well!
