I am a newbie to cake decorating and I am attempting a robot cake. My plan is to make a base of 15 x 10 cake (1 and a 1/2 10 inch quares then stack 3 10 inch squares as the body 1 8 x3 round as a neck and 3 8 inch squares stacked as a head. I am going to ice with buttercream and cover with fondant.

Do I need any kind of support? I plan on traveling with the pieces separately and assembling on site. Suggestions tips anything would be helpful.

Thanks!

yes maam. Cake boards between levels. You will also need dowels in place to support the next level. After all are in place you will need a long dowel with a point end to go from top to bottom. As you get to each cake board with the pointed dowel, gently screw it and it will go through each cake board. There are several tutorials on youtube for this method. Good luck-sounds like an awesome cake!! icon_biggrin.gif
