I embellished a barbie size Elsa doll with a RKT skirt covered in fondant. Now it weighs over 2 lbs! It is going on a fondant covered tiered cake (6" and 10") and the base of the skirt is almost 6" in diameter (so it will be covering the whole top of 6" tier). I am starting to wonder and panic if this will smash the cake. I'm not as concerned about it falling over bc it is very sturdy. Anyone know if this would smash the cake? The original cake had Elsa just standing on the cake but I didn't know how to do that without her falling over so that is why I tried this way. I have to finish the cake tonight so if anyone can help me ASAP then I would truly appreciate it!

I was going to say the same thing as Kate - treat it like another cake tier and support it with dowels/straws/whatever you are using to stop it from putting pressure on the cake below.
