or a cake with an attached head. I'm so afraid it will fall off. Any advice would be great.
Hi I've done a few 3D cakes and the last one I did was really heavy and I took 2 long dows in the center of the head one closer to the front and one closer to the back to secure the head on well and while transporting it I would have someone hold it or secure it in the back seat or floorboard it shold be fine.
Like Jonahsmommy said, two dowels are helpful because they add more stability. Depending on the type of head (for instance, the Wilton 3D duck pan or something of that sort) there should be a board under the head as if it were its own tier - which it often is. Then dowel through the board.
