Hello all,
My bride wants a three teir square cake 6-8-10 with the illusion that the bottom layer is floating on real roses. So this is not in between the layers its as if the whole cake was floating. I am pretty much in the dark as of how to do this! I have never done one before. Could someone please help me? Thanks!

You probably need to use clear supports, somehow chop them down so they are only a couple of inches tall for the very bottom tier. Lay your "bed of roses" out, and then assemble the cake "on top" of it. Get it? Sounds the easiest way to me.

I would think that you can set the cake on a styrofoam dummy that is smaller than the bottom cake layer and then put the roses under it. That is what I would do. Good Luck!

Actually, rver's idea sounds much easier! icon_wink.gif

That's what I thought too. The same way you would do between the tiers. Just make sure your styrofoam dummy is not too small to give support to the cake.

I'd love to read what others say.

Yep. Set that 10" cake on a 8" dummy and snuggle the flowers right up to it.

I you will look in my photo I have a chocolate square cake resting on a bed of fresh roses.....it took 8 dozen roses to complete the bed. It is a wet foam base about an 2" smaller that the botton tier.....covered with foil to avoid seeping.

You can do it with silk roses also. If you have any other questions let me know...the bride was elated with the look.

This may help (or not) but here is one I did, http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1178608

The cake is sitting on a styrofoam ring with all the roses placed in it. Maybe an idea you (or someone) can use?

Good luck, I'm sure it'll be pretty.
