Three-Tier Whimsical Wedding Cake Design : Wedding Cake: Attach Topper Using Dowel


Hi, my name is Melissa Maggiore with Alessi
Bakeries. I’m going to be inserting this humorous cake topper on the top of this unleveled,
non traditional, very whimsical wedding cake. Usually a topper such as this, it might not
be quite on center. Usually you might have a groom standing over to the side, or maybe
the bride is a little bit off. So you would want to make sure that your dowel placement
is actually in the center of the biggest part of the topper. You’re actually then going
to find your center. You don’t really want the topper to actually hang over the edge,
because you don’t want the top of the tier to actual slope, or start to melt, or put
too much weight. You want most of the weight to actually be underneath where the larger
part of the topper is. So basically we’re going to find the center, we’re going to make
sure that the actual edge of the top of the tier is actually going to be placing on the
cake and not be hanging over. You might want to measure a little bit, see if you can go
in a little bit more, or over a little bit more, where ever it might be to make sure
that this topper is going to be stabilized. And then you’re just going to gently push
it in. It is going to be sitting at a small angle, just to make it a little bit more humorous,
to look like your groom is actually getting ready to either jump off the cake and she’s
catching him to hold him on, or maybe he slipped and fell into the icing. My name is Melissa
Maggiore with Alessi Bakeries, in Tampa Florida.
