I need some help.  I am making a TARDIS for the groom's cake for my soon to be hubby.  What would be the best way to create a tower from a sheet cake to insure that it doesn't collapse when he cuts it?  Or, do I need to go find a special pan?  Thanks in advance. Smiley

Do you mean to make it standing upright? You could do it in layers with wooden dowels as supports.

Making it in layers would probably be easiest in terms of making and stability, but I'd say however you did it there would still be a risk of collapse. The best thing to do would be to make it however you feel is best, make sure that the knife is very sharp and give the groom some cake cutting tips.

The only signature he needed was my fist. With a pen in it. That I was signing with.

If I were you, I'd go for a rectangular cake with a horizontal TARDIS, as opposed to a tower.  It would be safer from a "the cake might collapse" standpoint.  If you are set on a tower, I'd build it around some sort of central support column... you could even stick a little battery-powered flashing light on top.

I'm picturing your new husband slicing open the TARDIS cake to find there's a LOT more cake than he would expect... it is bigger on the inside after all Wink
