I have a 3 tier cake for next Sunday. The middle tier is an 8" double barrel dummy. I bought 2 4" high 8" dummies and will put them together. Will the break between them show through the fondant? I guess if I hot glue them together really well or skewer them or nail them together so they won't shift, the fondant would stay smooth.
Also, can I cover it with fondant this weekend and store it until next weekend when I am putting it all together? Or will it look "old" by then. I'm trying to do this cake in small steps so it won't take all my free time next week. I work, so I will be working on the cakes in the evenings next Thurs and Friday and finishing it on Saturday. My hubby always says he "loses his wife for a week every time she has a cake."
