I'm making a killer whale cake and used Royal Icing to do the orca image. I was inspired by the beautiful cake below...

BUT how do I get it to stand up on the top? It's not very thick, should i "glue" a lolli stick to the back? If so, what should i use to glue it, RI?

Sorry I don't know, but maybe you can PM the person who made this cake and ask for help.

It should be able to stand up on its own, ri transfers are very lightweight, just sticking it into the icing usually holds it, but yes definitely glue a lollipop stick to the back with thickened royal and let dry overnight...that will do the trick for sure.

Yes, glue a stick of some sort to the back with royal. I prefer to use 5" bamboo skewers because they're as thin as toothpicks.

I would do a stick as well. Royal or melted chocolate should work great.

I Always use toothpicks they work fine. For the whale I would use 2 toothpicks.
