Perhaps make a tall stand for the stem, cover the stand with fondant and then make only the top part out of cake...

Are you making pot brownies for them also? lol Sorry, couldnt help myself! I swear, people with their strange requests. I had a bride that wanted beer bottles all over her cake because that was the only thing that she could think of that they had in common. They met at a bar, and drink. Sounds like their headed for AA and divorce court!!!

I don't know how big you need it but I made one by using the Wilton giant cupcake pan and I turned the bottom part upside down.

Sorry I couldn't help more.

Good Luck
