Q&A with Kristin Winsall

CakeBakerMoney asked:
I've watched the wonky cake titorial, but is that topp tier a dummy??
Kristin Winsall answered:
Yes, the top tier is a dummy, but only because we had more than enough cake for our guests ( actually way too much ) if I had to cater for more I would make the whole lot out of cake.
DeannaSB asked:
What type of support do you use, if you don't mind me asking?
Kristin Winsall answered:
We used dowel just as suggested in the tutorial.
Rita Margolian asked:
I too, would like to know how you kept the top tier on this wonderful cake.
Kristin Winsall answered:
With great difficulty, we used dowel as suggested in the tutorial, once the math was done and we knew where to place the cake we did and then we DIDN'T move it, the cake stayed on the stable till the night of the party.
moni gzz asked:

Kristin Winsall answered:
Just the top tier is dummy. If I had more guests would have been all cake.
