I´m new at making cakes and I have been asked to make one in the shape of a pineapple...so my plan is to make various cake molds (larger to smaller) and obviously to stack them like that, but I´m worried that when I deliver it, it could tip over...I haven´t inserted dowels before, as Ive only ever done one-layer cakes, but I´m assuming it will need one large one, but how do I insert that into the cakeboard so it doesnt fall....any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks! :)
I've made a cake similar to this. Use either 2 or 3 6-inch round cakes and carve it into the shape of the pineapple, or make the bottom layer of cake out of a bowl, then stack rounds on top, same diameter as the bowl. This way you have a flat bottom to stand it on.
AYou can use a clean pencil sharpener for one end of a center dowel, you can use a hammer to lightly tap it through your cake boards and into the bottom base board. Make sure you also use some sort of support between your cake layers.
