This is probably a dumb question but I am sooo new to all of this. I have a shaped pan that I need to put on a sheet cake. How do I do that? Is it too heavy? Does it need supports of some kind??

It really depends on the kind of cake your making. If it's only the sheet cake and then the shaped cake I wouldn't bother. Unless you're somehow putting fondant on the shaped cake. If you feel like it needs support you can always cut straws to size, the work really well and are easier to use. My opinion at least. Good luck!

Make sure the shaped cake is on a cake board cut to size/shape!

agree with crankycakes. If it's a single layer sheet and a standard single layer shaped cake, then you dont' need cardboards or dowels or anything else. It's just a regular 2-layer cake except the layers are shaped different.

No different weight than the 2-layer cake your mom would make when you were a kid.
