I would cut a small piece off the bottom to make it flat. Then dowel it. Plus a blob of RI under it.

AThankyou for answering so quickly.! Do you know how big I need to make it to feed around 40 people?

That I do not know. But it has to be fairly big.

Here's a globe cake, she sort of glued it to the bottom with white chocolate or royal. I definitely go with a mudcake or pound cake.

Alternative you can drill a small hole in a heavy duty cake drum, and glue or attach a thick dowel in the middle. Make a large hole to fit the bottom in (with a predrilled acrylic or wood round for underneath the cake tier-a very small round so it doesn't peak through) add some smaller dowels in the bottom half sphere, cake circle (with predrilled hole), other cake circle. I'd probably put all this together then ganache and fondant before adding to the structure. Hope this makes sense, I can see it in my head.
