Hello my fellow CC'ers. I would love a little insight please on how to go about stacking this cake. The balls will be Styrofoam.

AI just saw your beautiful cake, You did a fantastic job! I was wondering what you came up with, if you wouldn't mind sharing? Did you use some sort of metal/plastic structure? I'm super curious to see what it looks like inside lol!

Thanks everyone, well in a nutshell, I screwed a long pole, a curtain rail actually which I double wrapped with cling film to a large round wooden  board. covered the board with fondant then arranged the base cakes about six 9' cakes around the pole with a gap in the center where I put two 6' styrofoam rounds with holes in the centers through which I passed the pole. Next came the smaller  7'' rounds on top of the 9'' dowelled cakes. Next came the fondant covered and decorated styrofoam ball which I had also drilled holes into and slightly flattened the top and bottom for balance.  I carved out a hole in the centers of all the cakes,dowelled them minus the topmost tier and passed the pole through them till I got to the top,then I cut off the excess pole, put the top decoration, sugar flowers,beads and voila! I was done. All side stencilling was done prior to setting up the cake. HTH.

Phenomenal..That would scare me to death trying to do that. How wide did the bottom turn out to be?

You did a fabulous job both decorating and stacking.  Just saw post today and thought it would need a major pipe support.  You came up with right ideas. icon_biggrin.gif

 

Please post more of your cakes in future...
