I've been browsing The Knot for cakes. I registered and then received an e-mail with a link that included "to search for professionals in your area". So I clicked on Cakes/bakeries and I have found a ton of awesome cakes.

Check this out by Inticing Creations!

Seriously!! I'm thinking it was done for a triple wedding based on it's title.

Look at this one!

I don't think you cut it. You shellac it and keep it forever. icon_biggrin.gif

My guess is they aren't real cake. You can do alot with fake cakes that you cant do with real cake. That has to be top heavy. But maybe I am wrong!!!!

It looks like they could easily lift one off the other--well, kinda easily icon_razz.gif

Perfect for someone who can't make up their mind. "one of these three designs? how's about all three?"

I think that it's amazing that they accomplished it (assuming it's all cake, and not a bunch of styrofoam dummies). But.....I can't imagine why someone would want that! I mean, all 3 cakes are beautiful, but if I couldn't decide, I'd have 3 cakes on my cake table. But I wouldn't stack them up on top of each other! Seems like a silly idea. Impressive engineering, but silly (and not in a good way like topsy turvy cakes).

I'd love to see when they put that together how they did it.

I would assume the top tier of the lower 2 cakes is stryofoam to support 4 or 5 heavy-duty rods. I'm sure there is a hole drilled in the base of the top cake bases and a PVC pipe all the way through the center.

That's what I'd do, anyway! icon_surprised.gif

Personally I think it's just weird. Oh, I think two of the three cakes is pretty but it looks like someone stacked up three fake wedding cakes right off a display, boards and all. I can't imagine someone wanting something like that for an actual event. And yes I know how some people have strange ideas blah blah blah. If someone were to want three distinct designs like that stacked why ever would they be stacked with like that with boards too, as though they were made to be set right on a table. Doesn't look good OR make sense to me. We've all seen pics of cakes stacked way high and I don't think this would be so difficult with a good sturdy system, but this looks dumb to me.

But I have to say there are some really beautiful cakes in this persons gallery! Nice work!!!
