Building your support for this style cake is very important. You’ll want it to be extra sturdy for support & have it centered weight wise on the metal pole (not to high) to avoid it from rocking to much from side to side. Unfortunately we did not measure exactly where we placed the washers and nuts, so my best advice would be to put something a bit on the heavy side on top and wiggle around your board to see if your support moves to much, if it does just lower your washer some and try it again.
Once you find the right placing tighten your board there.
I used an 8″ round 1/4 wooden board & some foam board from our local hardware store. The cake never touches the foam but you definitely need something to sink your dowels into-to hold your cake on the board. I also hot glued mine for extra support.
Next I hot glued the lights under the board.
I have the lights linked for you here
Next add your cakes, torte, fill, frost and shape add your dowels for your support and chill Next step is to cover all in fondant. Then add your trim Next is the painting process. You can use a templet, or hand paint on your design. You can also use cutters as guides to use for impressions onto your cake to help guide you and fill your space. I used Wilton Gel color mixed with small amounts of vodka. Having an image handy to help guide you is very helpful.
I completed this design by adding a gumpaste tea cup and fondant beads & a candy melt broach
