SERIOUS Cake HELP needed ASAP!!!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 18
Your cake is settling extra because without internal support (JUST dowels does nothing for gravity) and now the fondant piece is too large. To save this cake, you have to disassemble, reassemble with a board in the middle as the pps have described, and redo it. Sucks, but that's the truth.

icon_sad.gif As much as it will be a lot of work for you to do, I think it will be a lot less work in the long run if you can save the cake part and some of the fondant work. if you leave it it might all fall over and then you will be starting all over again. Good luck!

Ditto.

Here's an excellent video about cake construction:

For tall cakes like your phone box, you must have a cardboard for every 4" of height. You can carve the cardboard to the same size as the cake as you are stacking. When you cut the cake, you simple cut from the top down until you reach your top-most cardboard. Cut and serve the slices. Remove the cardboard. Continue on down to the bottom.
