Ok, I'm doing a wilton cake from the 2008 yearbook, 'Pleated Pathways'. I'm really excited about this cake! I have a few questions...

- I'm doing b/c instead of fondant but still doing the fondant swag. When is the earliest I could attach the swags? Well I guess I should ask, would the night before be ok, I don't want to do it any earlier than that. I'm afraid of not placing it JUST right the first time and messing up my bc but I guess I'm just going to have to be VERY careful!

- Tinting the flowers and fondant covered board an iris color instead of pink, any suggestions?

- Anyone ever made this one and have suggestions?

-Ok for me to make and cover in large box and keep out (not refrigerated) until the next day (delivery day)

Thanks in advance for ANY help!

I don't have that yrbk to look up the cake in ?.
Yes, you should be able to attach the swags the night before w/o a problem.
An Iris color is purple. Know that it has a tendency to fade to a blue/gray icon_sad.gif
I would say yes - you should have no problem making it the day before and keep it boxed at room temp. as long as the filling doesn't need refrigeration.

Thanks! I tried my best at the iris color tonight (flowers on cake are not irises, only using that flower in the arrangements and that color as an accent at the party). I feel like it's not quite bright enough but I think it will work. Thanks for the info on the other parts of my question!
