stack a bunch of round cakes that go from large to small, cover in fondant make that top thingy out of modeling clay or something... hahaha im just laughing cuz i wonder what the bride is thinking!!! ahahh
Yah, follow aleesha's suggestions.
Make 2" deep single layer cakes.......each size ie: 10,9,8.7,6 OR just the even sizes 6,8,10.
If I rememvber right the top is sort of a donut- more of a cup on an angle this could be a cupcake .
Thanks, any suggestions on the best way to get the "pleats" on there?
I think you will find when you cover the cake w/fondant it will look just like pleats. That's why I suggested 1" difference between sizes of the cakes.....make it look more pleated.
thanks for your input. I tried to back out of this cake, but he wouldn't let me. So I will be doing it in Dec. Will post a pic.
id do a wonder pan mold...
then add fondant rings... then drape the whole thing in fondant..
I don't really have any other suggestions to offer, but when you are finished, I hope to see it. This looks like it will be a fun challenge....
rocketgirl, i am planning to do the 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 rounds because I need more servings than the dome pan. But that is exactly what I've been thinking about doing the rings and draping the fondant over.
2 larger pictures, perhaps they will help.
Oh! Duh, wonderpans serve like no one! Glad you liked my idea...
the 5,6,7,8 thing will work just fine.
I am think you should put a ring on the edge of it.... somehow... oh i don't know.
good luck. don't forget to post a photo
