The Hanging Moon Cake (semi-tutorial)

Here are the instructions, though not super detailed.
I kind of made it up as I went…so I hope this makes sense:

I used the wilton ball pan. Then I went to home depot and got a really long threaded screw (it didn’t have a head on it) Then bought a washer that would fit that was 1 or 1.5 inches in diameter and flat, and a nut for the end. Then I put the screw through the cake, added the other stuff at the bottom, Put the fondant on it, and Froze it. I don’t know how much longer it would have lasted…4 hours was probably the max. You’ll have to play around with it a bit, because I am sure there is a better way!
The idea was to have a stick through it and either a plate, or cardboard or something to hold it at the bottom. The washer seemed to work the best, even thought it was small. I thought of using a bowl or something, but it didn’t stick with the round shape.
