Hi all, I have a request for next weeekend for an elmo cake, made out of the 3-d wilton bear pan. The problem is, she wants it only for the kids because she's having another dominican cake for the adults and she doesn't want to pay for it being placed on another cake. Can I make it stand on it's own without dowelling it to another cake? I'm afraid it will tip in transport and since it'll be all buttercream on the outside I can't prob it up against anything
need some advice please icon_smile.gif

I've transported the 3D bear (carefully!) ....perhaps if you can pipe a border around it's base, or put some things around the bottom (I don't know...cookies? I've piped a "field" of grass with drop flowers), it helps keep the cake stable on the base.

Hope this helps! icon_smile.gif

Yes agree. make sure there is icing under for glue. Or you can get a styrofoam disk and cover that in foil. You should be able to put dowels through the cake into the styrofoam. Hope this helps.
