I'm making a dodge ball cake this week and I have question on how to secure the ball on top of the cake. It's going to be a 2 tier cake 8in & 6in. The dodge ball will be about 4in. I was wondering if I just needed to put some bubble tea straws in the 6in and a small wooden dowel in the ball. Can anyone help me? TIA icon_smile.gif

I would do bubble tea straws in the cake, and the on the very bottom of the ball put a very thin piece of cardboard. I know the bottom of the ball will be rounded, so there's not going to be a ton of area for you to put cardboard on, but I would make sure there's at least a little piece so the RKT ball doesn't sink into the straws. Then I'd dowel the ball to secure it to the cake. icon_smile.gif

Sounds good. Thanks! Do I cover the cardboard with anything? The cake will be covered in white bc and the ball will obviously be covered in red fondant

I will be placing a RKT teapot on a 10 in round cake. The teapot is kinda heavy and big so I am planning on placing 3 dowels right under the teapot. The teapot is placed on top of a small round foamcore covered in fondant. Then i will put a long thin skewer down the middle of the teapot and the cake itself, covering the hole with a small top for the teapot.

I think that I'll cover the board in white fondant and make it small enough to hold the ball but not be too noticeable. Thank you both!! icon_smile.gif
