Hi, all. I am in the process of making a 6 inch smash cake. I baked two 2 inch cakes for the bottom, torted/filled so there are 3 layers. It's iced, covered in fondant and it is setting right now. I then baked a bowl shape top for the cake. My question is, will the bottom handle the weight of the bowl shaped top, decorated with buttercream swirls? I don't really want to put supports in because it will be smashed by a 1-year old and I don't want any injuries. Thoughts? Thanks!
ABy the way, this is a cupcake smash.
AIs the bowl basically another two inch layer? So the whole thing is 6"? Should be fine! Also fondant isn't really "smash able"
AYes I would say its another 2 inch layer. I used the fondant to make the look of the cupcake liner.
AIf you are really worried, use straws as your support. It won't hurt the kid and you will get your support.
But you should be more than ok without support
