I am looking to make my own graduation party cake, and I wanted to achieve this effect:

But I can't figure out how to go about it. I'm new to this and hoping to get some cool experience by doing my own cake.
Thanks!

If its on a real cake, i would do the bottom first, just drape the whole thing over the top like a normal fondant covering, Ok, it cut me off. anyway, then i can do the top, with the smoothing, the cutting, and the molding. i let my little daisies dry partially before i put them on. then made the fondant centers (just a little pinch) and smooshed them in. getting the diag. cut is the hardest part, so trace it out first before you cut!

Read through the comments she kind or explains how she did it.

I did read her description, I guess I was looking for tips, or suggestions on how to make it even, and smooth.

Thanks!

Myabe you could try PMing her. Also, Aine2 has some great videos on smoothing and covering cakes with fondant.

I love the cake in the picture, and wanted to try similar - but even with the comments, I can't quite visualize how to do this.

If the bottom color is first, do you pre-cut the diagonal? Then lay the top color on and cut to fit? On real cake would a pizza wheel pull frosting though?

Sorry so many questions? Looks so cool - simple and elegant, but seems hard to do.

Thanks - Pat
