My friend is getting married, and brought a picture of a tree cake with five branches that hold five cakes covered with fondant and callah lillies.
The trunk is covered with fake leaves an the branches hold five round cakes.
I'm planning to make one 6, one 8, one 9, one 10, and one 12, plus five half sheet "back cakes"

Has anybody seen a cake like this, where can I buy the tree holder and how much fondant do I need to cover a the cakes??

THanks for you help

can you post a link to the picture of the cake you are trying to duplicate. It would help us know exactly what you are looking for.

I did a tree. It only held three rounds but could easily be modified to hold 5. Unfortunately I can't help you on where to buy a tree holder as my husband made mine but was fairly simple to make. If I can be of any assistance please let me know.

I know I have seen these on someones webiste out there somewhere, and if I remember correctly they had made them themselves. Not sure if they are out there for sale.

But I may be thinking of something different than what you are talking about so yeah, a link would be great.

Wow, that is quite a set up. I'd worry about the stability of some of them. The one cake looks angled more then it should be. Hopefully you can find the right pieces to use. Good luck!!!

This might help you out a bit. Doug provided a great visual on how to make the tree stand. You can easily modify it to make multiple branches. To see a multiple branches version look in my pics. It might give you an idea that can help.

Good luck.
