I have a bride who wants this cake in July. She wants the cake layers(white) to be 10" round with the carnations in between layers. She only wants 3 total layers. 10" cake then a carnation layer then another cake layer. All 10" round. In the pic the white cake is covered in coconut. She would prefer butter cream How would I get it to look similar? Thanks.

Maybe she wouldn't mind some finely shaved white chocolate?

I think the chocolate shavings is a great idea, but if she insists on buttercream, you could just tap the sides with a spatula to create the spackled look.

blow the icing on with a mud sprayer!

That would be cool...it's something I'd like to try anyway.

I looked at the picture before I read your post and I thought from the distance, it was cornelli lace.

I'm with Mindy. I thought it looked like Cornelli Lace too. Sotas might be close too.

I've wanted one for cakes since I seen my uncle blow the ceilings about 20 years ago. I would have icing everywhere though...so, until I get a special box or area...I'll just keep wanting.

what if you covered the cakes with the star tip.

I was thinking the same thing. Or maybe overlapping layers of cornelli lace.

Looking back over this... I'm really liking the idea of shaved white chocolate. There's just something decadent about shaved chocolate!
