I'm doing a pink & brown whimsical cake with stripes. The cake is tiered but not going to be sitting on top of each other I'm putting it on a floating cake stand. One layer is going to have stripes. Any ideas how I can make the stripes but not have a big overlapping mess in the middle or something to put in the middle to connect the stripes to. I'm open for ideas it is a bridal shower cake. 1 tier heart cutouts, 1 tier stripes and 1 tier circles with the bride and grooms intials in chocolate for topper.
I might be missing something in your question, but it's just a simple matter of cutting the stripes to the right length.
Envision the cake as a clock. The first stripe would run from 6 o'clock to 12 o'clock. Then you would have the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock stripes butt up against the 6-to-12 stripe. Your other stripes would be cut at angles at the top where they join in the center so none overlap.
It's not hard. You just have to do it and you will see how they fit as you go along.
Oh my you guys make is sound so easy I was beating myself up trying to figure it out.
