I made a Bud Light can cake. It's 4 layers of 6" rounds. I put the cardboard cake round in between like suggested. Doweled the first level to support second. Did the X-pattern of dowels through top to bottom for added stability. But the cake is leaning to right. Can I place something under the edge of the right side (wedge??) to straighten it? It's already decorated and covered in fondant. Please advise....thanks icon_biggrin.gif

How much is it leaning? If it's just slightly off I would just put some fondant underneath it like you are thinking - I do that occasionally as well! icon_smile.gif
