I made an Easter Egg with the Wilton pan and I was wondering how (and even IF) I can make it stand on end?
PS: I'm not into drilling things, so if this is required, then I'll have to re-think this!

i've never tried it, but you might cut a little off one end so it will stand up.

That's a good idea to cut off the bottom a bit..

I'm just wondering if it will come apart because the pan is 2 halves put together? I don't know that the BC filling and fondant over it is strong enough to keep it from splitting or falling?

Maybe I should cut in half the other way, board and dowel? Then it would be like a stacked carved cake? Just not sure if that would weaken the structure anymore because then you have 4 pieces instead of 2!

Do the cutting part on the bottom of the egg, put a layer of frosting on the top of one half, place the second on top, stand up and use bamboo skewers at an angle to keep the 2 halves together, not straight down or across but from upper right to lower left side and vice versa

I ended up using a board, dowels and dowel in the center because I was transporting. I tried, but could not make him stand up! He was sinking....So, I improvised and had him sitting. I still think he turned out cute. They liked it at my kids' daycare!
