I'd like to make this cake for a baby shower. Any advice on how to put the cake on top of the fish bowl so that it wouldn't fall off and it would be secure?
Also I'm not good with fondant, how is the top made? Any alternate ideas that would be easier?
Maybe just a hat. Thanks for any help.

I made a Dr. Suess cake and set the fish bowl on top of the hat, but if I were doing this I would hot glue the cake board to the top of the fish bowl. The bowl itself could actually have a round piece of 1/2 foam board hot glued to the bottom of it. 3-5 sharpened dowel inserted in the foam board and then inserted in the cake for stability. Better safe than sorry. That is what I would do. Hope that helps some. Joni

I'd use double-sided tape or put pegs for feet on the bottom of the board to use as stoppers to prevent the tier from shifting off-center from the opening of the glass bowl.
