I need to make a display cake covered in fondant using styrofoam cake forms.

How do I keep the fondant from slipping off the form?

How do I stack the tiers...dowel rods...glue...royal icing?

If anyone could help I'd greatly appreciate it.

I can only say I've heard to spread the form with a light coat of buttercream before putting on the fondant.
Stacking would be dowel sticks tapped in.
the rest of the assembly would be just like a regular cake.

Hope someone else can help as this is only what I've read.
Never have done this.

Hi, you can use water to damp the dummies and then cover them with fondant. To stack them, use a tiny bit of royal icing under each tier. icon_smile.gif

I can't tell you about the fondant covering part, but you do not need to dowel a display cake. You can use anything you want to glue them together. I've used bc smeared on and I've even used hot glue. If you use actual glue you won't be able to take them apart and reuse them though.
