I'm working on a cake for a friends b-day tomorrow, and on top of the cake will be a 10" x 6" cake in the shape of a vase. I'm going to put roses on top of that.

I've never covered a cake that was so high and narrow. Should I wrap it around the cake, or drape it over the top as regular cakes?

I think on an episode of ace of cakes I watched the other night they wrapped it around instead of draping it. Hopefully someone will be able to give you more info than I can!

I have a lindy Smith book, " cakes to inspire and desire" and in it is a tall cylinder cake 4 4inch rounds to 8 inches or more tall (cant recall exactly from memory but it is tall) And she says to wrap icing around the sides, to cut a big rectangle and cover the sides and then a round to cover the top. Hope some of this made sense and that it helps at all.
