I was wondering if anyone knows how to do an open lid for a treasure chest. I've read numerous comments where people have used dowels in the front that are higher than the back dowels. This makes sense but it would seem to me that the lid would slip off. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I made a lap top cake a few weeks ago and had some great suggestions on here. The lid had to be "semi" open so I'm assuming it will kind of be like this with the top for your cake? What I ended up using was rice crispy treats that were supported by dowels, and then I covered the whole thing in fondant. It worked out perfect and stayed completely in place!

Check out my pirate cake. Its a smaller treasure chest but I used a toothpick to hold the lid open in the front. I just made it look like a gold coint stack... In the back its literally just stuck with water. Didn't move at all. It was transported stacked 100 miles.
