Hi, I have been asked to recreate this cake - not the actual things going on through out the cake but the cake itself including the top tier! I keep looking over it and the top tier really looks like nothing is holding it up on the down tilted side! I have no idea how to get it to stay like this and really need some help or any ideas please!!

Thanks xxx

I think I would just do it out of a cake dummy and use plenty of glue!!!!

Does the top tier have to be real cake? I would use a dummy cake and glue the whole thing together

What if the very top was a dummy cake so it could be glued on the board and won't slip off bc its lighter? I'm interested to see what others have to say on this topic! Good Luck! Theresa

It's a Mikes Amazing Cakes cake. How it was done I have no idea. I'd begin by thinking about a caddy wampus cake stand.

Dummy Cake! Never thought of that!! They did want 4 tiers but I suppose I can still make the 4 tiers they can just cut it up to use separately?? Thanks so much I dont know why I didnt think about doing that. How can I get it to slant though without using a support under it on one side even though it would be glued on?

Thanks xx

So funny - except for Amazing Mike - everyone says Dummy Cake!
