I was wondering if someone could tell me what to use for separating tiers when they sit one on top of the other. I am making a 3D Elmo cake for my daughters 1st birthday and he will be sitting on a flat rectangular cake. I don't want him to sink into the other cake....Anyone please help with this as her birthday is only 3 weeks away.TIA for your help.

put the elmo on a board and put dowels in the cake underneath him. could also put a dowel all the way thru both elmo and cake if you r worried he might topple over. good luck!

I'm not sure what you are talking about but I've seen people sculpt cakes and they have cardboardboad circles and then dowels in between layers. As far as I can remember check out youtube. Elisa Strauss I believe has a video making a 3d sculpted cake.

But if you just mean placing a sculpted cake on top of a flat cake, dowels and cardboards would do.

I put my cakes on cardboard rounds. I was scared at first, because I thought the cardboard would get soggy, but it doesn't ! good luck!
