Hi All!

It looks like a couple of round cakes were pushed together to create the figure 8 race track. But, how would you place the 2 cakes together to get that clean look like it is one whole piece. Also, the green grass looks amazing. I have tried this before but the strands just fall flat on the cake. They do not stand up. Do I use royal icing? Stiff BC icing? Any tips is appreciated.

Instead of saving this photo to my facorite photos on CC, I saved it in my AOL toolbar, so I cannot reach the person who made this..... =(

Maybe they cut part of the rounds on each end to make it kind of flat and then frosted them together.

I think you would cut a little piece off of both sides of the cake and put them together, you do use stiff buttercream and do not pull up too tall.

Yes you just need to stiffen up the icing - royal or buttercream.
