I am making my daughter's wedding cake in July. We are doing 4 tiers,

12, 10 8 and 6. In between each tier I want to have about 4 inches wide of gumpaste flowers that I am making. Main flower is going to be rose with lots of filler flowers.

My question is what do I use to stick the flowers into?? Styrofoam???...and how do I secure and stabalize each tier. Do I put the plate on the top of the cake then use the dowels then the other plate on top of the flowers which will then hold the next layer of cake???

Please help, I want the best way to make this cake. Thanks sooo much!! Take care!

I would use the SPS and use the taller pillars adjusted to the height you need between the cakes. Yes, you can stick the stems of the flowers into styrofoam.

If the cake is fondant covered you may want to cover the styro in it too. I'd wrap it entirely in fondant.

Since you seem to be a newbie, pleae use SPS for your support system. We don't want to see you later in the Disasters Forum.

You can purchase it from Oasis supply online. And follow the directions in my signature line to see how it works.
