I need to place a ceramic cake topper on top of a fondant covered cake. I have never placed a cake topper like this on a cake so I don't know what the proper way is of doing this. The topper weighs about 1 lb. and its about 4 in x 2 in wide. Do I need to put anything between the topper and the cake??? Thanks for your help!!
Use wooden dowels underneath for support.
I would definitely put a couple wooden dowels or bubble straws for support so it won't sink into the cake
Dowels for support, but you may want to trace some wax paper or parchment paper to go under it so any oils from your cake will not get into the ceramic piece. Another thought, some ceramic pieces contain a lot of lead paint. They have food safe ceramic paints and then there's the other stuff. I made ceramics years ago and would always use the food safe paints when I planned on using them in the kitchen.
Thanks for all your great suggestions!!!
