Hi everyone! I'm making a princess cake (the kind where cake is dress) and would like to put her on a square or rectangle cake. Do I need some sort of support i.e. dowels? Will she crush the cake underneath? I would just put her beside the other cake but haven't a clue what type of design to put on that cake. Now that I think of it I don't know what to put on that cake if it's under her either!! icon_redface.gif Ideas or Suggestions?

Thank you all I appreciate it so much!

I've got a couple pictures in my photos - one on a sheetcake and one with small cakes stacked beside her decorated like a table. If you do a search for "barbie" or doll you'll see millions of ideas.

Yes, you need to put dowels in the bottom cake to support her.

I thought I'd need dowels, but wanted to double check. Your pictures are awesome! Thank you so much for response, think I'll figure something out for a cake beside her haven't done anything yet with stacking.

I have made barbies sitting on top of square and circle cakes before and never doweled them. I have never had a problem with the barbie cake squishing the bottom cake.
