Hi All. I am making my friend's wedding and she has chosen a figure she would like to use as a cake topper. My question is: What is the best way I can create a stable topper with a ceramic image that is about 5 inches tall? I am going to be using Red roses on top of the cake as well. Is there something I can sit on top of the cake or a way to attach this so it will not fall off if someone bumps the table?
If you make the figure on a stick then you can just insert it into the cake. Or make the figure and attach it to a plaque and then just attach the plaque onto the cake.
Cut a cake board to fit the topper, attach the topper to the board with glue or strong packing tape, dowel the cake where the topper will sit, and then arrange the roses to hide whatever edge of the board is visible. Or if you're afraid the topper will topple over, make the board bigger and attach the roses to it too, then dowel under it like you would another cake tier.
Thank you!!! I think glueing is the way I'll go! Thanks so much!
That's great. You must make it strong so the cake wont fell when moved.
