I am not sure what size to make the different tiers? Has anyone made this cake and any advice? Also the embroidery on the cake has anyone found a template or am I on my own?

Her Wedgewood cake was on the cover of the Spring 2000 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. Inside, it has some great instructions for baking/reproducing it....though no templates for patterns I can find. icon_sad.gif

It says it's made up of...

one 6" x 3" cake tier
two 9" x 2" cake tiers
one 12" x 2" cake tier
two 16" x 2" cake tiers
one 20" x 3" Styrofoam cake tier

To feed 310 servings.

If you would like me to scan the two pages of info though, just PM me your email address and I'll send them to you asap? icon_smile.gif

I made a version of this cake last fall. I scaled it down, and just "guessed" at how do replicate the designs. That brush embroidery took a while for me to do, and I would suggest a template if possible for the outline, mine were not as identical as I would have liked them to be.

I would love to have the REAL instructions too, if you wouldn't mind sending them to me!!

It makes a gorgeous cake, got lots of compliments on it. (the bride wanted hers in champagne and ivory insead of blue and white)

I can send them to you Loucinda, but I need you to PM me an email address. The scanned pages are way too large to add as attachments in our private messages here on CC.
