This was a pound cake with cream cheese filing covered in fondant. I did this cake for a bartender's birthday. I tried to make the cake match the glass, the glass says "Birthday Girl" and I don't know it you can tell but the glass is sinkin in to the cake. I did use dowels, I just don't think I use enough of them. I actually got paid for this cake even though I just wanted the practice. Besides the sinkin I am pretty proud of myself. Thanx CC for looking and for the ideas.
