But would carving into the cake like that take away from my servings? I mean an easy fix would be to add another tier if anything, oh but I'm loving this idea
post #21 of 40

to me it's their risk so sure i'd do it/have done similar--

 

of much more importance is the stability of the cake table--this is a disaster waiting to happen if it is a run of the mill catering table--i'd advise them to get a heavy desk or very solid like all wood table or one that does not ever fold up at all--

 

if it's an outdoor reception or an uneven floor--they're probably screwed--i'd just advise on the risks and the safeguards--it's very do-able from a cake standpoint as lots of cakers are saying upthread--

 

go for it--

Yes, the problem isn't necessarily putting it on the cake - it is all the cr*p you don't have control over, like a wobbly base, or somebody bumping the table, or somebody wanting to finger it - or all kinds of other possibilities that are beyond your control.

that is not the cakers responsibility imo--

 

so long as all risks and safeguards have been discussed w/b&g and the caker does all their caking part correctly--

 

done

 

imo

Someone bumping the cake and knocking the tier over is what's bugging meeee! Keep these great suggestions and "bear in minds" coming guys, I am so grateful for the help!

I know it's indoor, the cake will be in a corner near the bride and grooms table. Not out of sight but definitely away from the dance floor.

I would treat it as a tier, and set it on a cake round.  BUT I would adhere it with Museum Putty.

The groom can approve it.  It is used on valuable pieces, holds great, and causes absolutely no damage.

If someone bumps it, and it starts to fall, maybe one of the superheros in attendance at the wedding can swoop in and save it. :)

LOL! Liz that's too funny. And actually kinda accurate, all their guests are encouraged to come to the reception dressed as their favorite hero/heroine. I feel that if I manage to get over this topper situation I'll be a kinda superhero in my own right! 

 

But off to the drawing board to mull over these fabulous suggestions and see what we end up with. Thanks again everyone!
