If you put the toothpicks in at an angle, the truffles may be less likely to fall off.

I would use craft picks. They are larger than toothpicks and flat. They are bigger at one end and taper down to a point at the other end. 3 1/2" long. I love them and they give more stability. You can get them in a bag of 750 very inexpensive. Mine came from Hobby Lobby but I'm sure other craft stores carry them too. Good luck!

That's a lot of toothpicks going into the cake...seems like that alone would cause some damage not to mention, make it more difficult when it comes to cutting it...lost toothpick fragments in the servings where the knife nicked 'em.

I agree with the poster (gorgeous cake btw!) that said they'd support each other...

Thanks SO much for all of your help and input!!!
Do you think that if I used a dab of choc and attatch it to the Choc. BC, it will adhere? Cakechick123, I noticed that yours is attached to fondant. I am also thinking that the toothpicks might be a lot of toothpicks going into the cake. I am leaning towards halfing the truffles, and bringing my little melting pot and using a dab of choc. to adhere them. What do you think ladies???

I would do a the toothpick. If I am attaching to buttercream, I would use a bit of buttercream to attach it, if it's on top of fondant I would do chocolate.

I agree with Edna, I dont think the chocolate on BC will work, but maybe give it a try if you want. Im sure the bc, toothpicks and the way its stacked will be enough support

I'm thinking chocolate fondant and attached the truffle with melted chocolate then chilled it over night and until time to leave the house. Bring extra chocolate and truffle just in case some falls off on the way because of the heat. But chocolate fondant is more expensive so if you didn't charge enough for that the chocolate buttercream would be the way to go IMO. With chocolate buttercream, you need to attach the truffle on the toothpick which I would do at that step at home then attached the toothpicked truffle on site. It is hard to insert toothpick into a truffle without having the exterior broken I think. HTH.
