Hi All,

I am scheduled to make a Rotunda cake in late May for a wedding. I have an idea of how I want to proceed, but I would like to minimize any problems. I am thinking of using 12 inch rounds (probably 6 or so, stacked with boards every two cakes and dowels supporting them). Also, perhaps a 10inch, and a 9inch cake on top for the top...with some carving to make the dome. I would use styrofoam covered in gumpaste to make the trianlge in the front and then use Wilton pillars for the columns in the front. Am I on the right track here? Any tips? Doug, if you are out there, will this work? What about covering this thing in fondant? Will that be a bear? I was thinking of covering it, then using a brick impression mat, and then airbrushing the brick color.

Would love to hear some thoughts...thanks so much!

stack, triangle pillars should work..

for top -- can you get the soccer ball pan? -- it's an "almost" half round which would be much easier to shape as one piece than multiple layers.

sounds like you have a good plan.

looking forward to the pics
