Wow this was quite a cake to make! I needed to feed a minimum of 50 with this cake so he ended up being 7 layers tall with a lot of support inside. Even with all the dowel rods dividing layers one of the dowels managed to poke through the cake boards in the middle and he started to collapse on one side! After we got it to the party site I had to repair where he started bulging... They loved it anyway!!! Iced in bc with fondant accents.
