Hi, Ive been asked by a friend to make a tardis cake but im worried about the cake sinking, I was thinking of doing 3 layers of sponge, buttercream between 2 layers and jam the other, would this be ok or will it need dowels and a board in between to hold? Please help
Remind me, what is a tardis cake?
Doctor who telephone box ive attatched a picture hope it will show up :/ x

Sam. i suppose it depends how big you are going to make it, I only made a small one so i put one dowel through it to hold it to the base cake
I don't have a lot of experience with big cakes so i am sure someone with more experience will come along with some great advice
Okay thanks! I had something TOTALLY different in mind!! I thought it was that English fruit/nut cake that gets folded over like six or eight times (do you know what I'm talking about?) Anyway thanks for clearing that up!
Bobwonderbuns - lol - thats a Lardy cake. Made me smile xx
HA! I KNEW someone would know what I was thinking of!!
Dowel and board every 4" worth of cake or so. Look at it this way: when you don't, it may sink. When you do, it won't, makes it easier to cut, less chance of lower lvl buldging and fondant bubbles, etc.
