I am making an owl cake and I am not sure how to secure the cake since the bottom is smaller than the top. I am using 2 wonder molds upside down so O am using the smaller end down on the cake board. Pleae help.

If I'm imagining it correctly you are making a 3D owl cake where the bottom of the body is smaller than the top of the head part? Depending on how tall this is one of the things you may consider doing is to treat it like any other tiered cake...dowel and cake board it with a center dowel going all the way thru the cake to make it more sturdy.

I'd use dowels to stack it as well but to secure it down onto the board I'd use chocolate. It's quick drying and goes really hard. Good Luck
