I'm attempting my biggest cake ever for cake international next month BUT I've forgotten to work out to attach the top tier which is a 6 inch sphere to the tier below which has a flat top. Needs to be stong as its a 100 mile drive to Birmingham! Thanks for your help!

what are you sitting the sphere on? a cardboard? or what?

 

dowel the flat tier to whatever the sphere is sitting on--it has to sit on something--

 

you could use a piece of foam for the bottom of the sphere and just ice it all over so it looks like one continuous piece--you would sculpt foam + cake to look like the one sphere-- the cake part needs to sit on it's own board on top of the foam--

 

what's cake international?

if you had your own tv show what would be your favorite commercial/sponsor

i think i'd like ghirardelli and hershey for starters...

They're both polystrenne dummies and the sphere is the top tier and I'm planning to have it on a 6 inch round tier.

 

Cake international is the UK's largest cake exhibition in November in Birmingham.

yes, as cupcakemaker said just dowel it together--i'd use theskinny wooden shishkabob skewers from the grocery store (in the sates anyhow)  because they are already pointed--

 

oh oh oh --not birmigham alabama--hahaha-- of course!
