I'm making a cake for my daughter's birthday that will have a candy shop theme. It will just be a regular 9" round cake filled and frosted. I plan to decorate it will candy including several big whirly lollipops and twisty pops in the center. My question is, if I just stick the lollipops (they have wooden sticks) into the cake will the cake hold up or will the lollipops weigh it down and destroy the cake? It will be a strawberry cake with a whipped filling, which is my daughter's favorite. TIA

I think that if you put them straight in and not on an angle then should be okay. If you put them in at an angle the last minute then they might stay long enough to take pic and sing "Happy Birthday" I guess it probably depends on the size/weight of the lollipop too.

I was planning on sticking them in at an angle so that it has more of a whimisical look. I see it in pictures all the time, I'm just not sure if they are just sticking them straight into the cake or not.

If you take a look at this video, you will see what I'm talking about. The first cake they discuss is what I had in mind.

Could you try sticking a straw in and then putting the lollypop stick inside the straw?

Why don't you just make it a 2 tier and make the 2nd tier just a styrofoam cake covered in fondant with the lolipops stuck into that. My niece wanted a candy cake and that was my plan until she switched it to Dora

I love that video but noticed how tall that cake was. It's about 6".

Most layered cakes are about 4"
