Choo Choo Train For 3 Generations

What a FUN Cake! The baby likes trains so there in lies the theme. I didn't want the coal car to be too drab so I shook some Goobers with gold dust and voila'- Gold nuggets. Engine & Caboose are yellow cake with BC and center car is choc. cake, choc frosting. When time to cut the top of the caboose was taken off and used for the baby's smash cake. Wheels are Uh-oh oreos with BC and rails on cakes are cut and colored dowel rods. Tracks are BC too. Fun, fun, fun!

I made individual cake boards and then hot glued dowel rods to the main board just in from each corner and the middle after measuring where the boards would be (I think I used a 3/4" dowel and cut 5 pieces around 1/2" tall for each car). Then after decorating the cars I put glue on the tops of the dowels and carefully set the cakes on them so they wouldn't slide around. I had to be quick but careful before the hot glue cooled. Thans for looking! Oh, also before I set the cakes on I piped the tracks...

How did you make the cakes not be sitting directly on the base?
