I have a wedding cake to do this weekend and the bride wants each cake tiers on separate tree stump. The top tier will be a 6 inch layer with a 4 inch layer. The tree stump for this top layer the bride wants the tree stump height to be 20 inches tall. But the cake topper is a Burlap heart shape with the base of 2 1/2 inches wide.
The topper is 6" tall and I'm using buttercream frosting for the cake.
What can I do so that the cake topper will not topple over? I thought about using white chocolate to adhere it to, but don't have any way to heat the chocolate when setting it up. It's an outdoor wedding with no electricity. I suggested to the bride that she let me glue the topper to a dowel rod but the bride doesn't want anything screwed or glued to the base.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.
