Hi everybody! I made a shark cake which is top heavy on one side. I put dowels thru it hoping it would help but it seems to be tilting back because of the weight. I guess the dowels didn't work or i misplaced them. Is there a way i can fix this?

Thank you for any help//advice.

Is the shark sitting on top of another cake? If so, then you must place the dowels under the shark as well as thru the shark and the shark has to be set on a cake circle.
If it is a free standing shark, maybe your cake is not dense enough?

Thanks so much Dora. I guess its just not dense enough. It not sitting on a cake just a board. I put some cake pans behind it. I hope that stops it until we cut it tonight.
