Ok, so I don't want to sound like a total novice but this is my first teapot and I didn't know how exactly I should support it. I'm using the Wilton ball with about an inch or so cut of the bottom so it sits flat and set it on a 10" round cake for a "table". Should I cut a small cake board circle and dowel like I would with a normal tiered cake? The ball is heavy-ish so I don't think I'd trust it wouldn't collapse or sink. It doesn't need to last very long(i'm assembling it before the party tomorrow and it only will travel five minutes away. Any advice, input or ideas would be much appreciated! TIA!!

Any time you place one cake ontop of another cake you must use support.
