I have had someone request that I make a 3 tier wedding cake...Heart shaped tiers...
I have used the fountain with the cascade attatchments many times...but they are always UNDER the bottom tier...or sitting out front of the wedding cakes....
But I have someone who wants the fountain to sit on top of the large bottom Cake...then the columns supporting 2 more tiers....
I could really use some info/advice on this....
Can it be done? What size cakes/plates/columns will I need?
Any info would be greatly appreciated...
The cake is for this coming Saturday June 21....
Please email me any info....incase I don't get back to this post again. I'm easily lost on here lol!!!!
Thanks,
Kaye

I will email this to you also, but yes you can. Here are some pics of cakes where I've done it:

Because of the space needed by a fountain, I would say your bottom tier has to be a 16" as the 16" plate that will need to be on top of it is as small as you can go (so a 16" plate on top of a 14" cake just wouldnt' look right, ya know? icon_wink.gif )

I just remember another fountain cake I did for a small wedding: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1219677

I'm pretty sure this cake is using a 14" plate above and below the fountain, so 16" may NOT be the minimum size needed....

(emailing this info to you, too)

Indydeb is right just be sure to use enough dowel support in the bottom cake to hold all that weight! icon_lol.gif

I have used my fountain on top of a cake quite a few times. I love the fountain cakes, but most of the girls like the plainer stacked cakes now days. I have attached a cake that I did just 1 year ago, it sat on 6 heart shaped cakes.
