AI have been requested to make a 3 tier circus cake where the 3rd tier is a ball shape (circus ball). I have never stacked a round shape as a 3rd tier and I am scared it will fall. HOw do I stack it and assure it doesn't fall or weigh down the rest of the cake. Also, how do I find dowels long enough to go through all 3 layers? Thanks!!!

Hello there, just having a look through some of the blogs on the Craftsy website and came across this blog from the lovely Lesley at the Royal Bakery - http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/06/perfectly-spherical-cake/

 

There might be some tips in there for you and if it doesn't answer your questions, your can leave a comment at the end and she'll answer you directly. Best of luck :)

You might consider using SPS to stack the cake instead of dowels. I did a 3 tier groom's cake (you can see it in my pictures) that had a ball as the third tier. SPS made that sucker as steady as a rock, it even had a sugar ring around it that didn't budge during transport.
