Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

Ok, so Doug, if you use the wedge method, when and where do you insert the one long dowel?

What works best for the wedges!??

Thanks for the diagram!!

i really prefer this version of the "whimsy" cake over the other kind (carved, slanted cakes). plus, its so easy to do.

how do you keep the styrofoam from getting in the cake when you put a dowel through it?
post #30 of 51
I wrap the foam in plastic wrap to keep little pieces from shedding onto the icing. And I dowel and put a cardboard under each wedge to keep it from sinking into the cake when I hammer in the center dowel.
