Moody Metallic Pedestal Cake

I love me a pedestal cake! It takes a bit of engineering to ensure the top cake is secure but the results are so worth it! I trust royal icing for the job just as much as I trust the drunk uncle, cousin, friend, whoever at the wedding not to bump into the cake and send the top tier falling to the ground, splattering buttercream everywhere and smashing my sugar flowers into a million shards.

Instead, I Gorilla glued a small disc of wood into the bottom of the pedestal and drilled a small hole that fit my central dowel. Ok, yes; a little royal icing was used too!

Have you made a pedestal cake before? I’d love to pick your brain on how you do it!
