Hi everybody !
I'm baking a 10 inch cake and would like to add a 11" tall topper in its center (oscar statue).
The topper is made of white chocolate and has a dowel in its center.
I'm concerned the dowel will not be enough to keep the topper upright, what do you think ? Any suggestions on how to secure it ?
Thank you !!
Whoa, that's very tall. My first thought, would be to glue 2 (or maybe 3) cake drums together with hot glue and then run your dowel though all the cake board layers. But that's still a lot of height...I would definitely do some testing before the event.
Hi Cupadeecakes ! Thanks for your suggestion.
I might try that but I'm not sure my dowel is long enough to get through cake AND cake drums though...
So I had this idea today: what if I replaced the center of my cake with melted chocolate, then add my fondant + topper; and let the chocolate dry rock hard in order to balance the weight ? I suppose it's a physics quizz more than a cake question ! haha
Do you think it's a good idea ?? And if so, how much chocolate do you think I should put ?...
