I am doing a fire truck cake and want to make it raised so it appears like it's resting on the wheels. I would like to know if it's possible to elevate the cake by just placing foam core board between the cake base and the board the cake will actually sit on? In my forum search it seems that many suggest including dowels behind each wheel that are directly screwed into the cake base. Is this necessary? Would it be sturdy enough with just the foam core board? Also, what should I used to attach the foam core boards to the cake base as well as the cake board the cake will be sitting on? The cake base will be covered in fondant. Thanks in advance!
