many separate petals of gumpaste or fondant.

layered on starting at top and working down.

I agree. Many petals with a slight ruffle. Layer them on like a pine cone from the top down.

That's gorgeous! I'm not sure, but it looks like large half circles from fondant or fondant/gumpaste, or I guess it could be modeling chocolate? It looks like you would just take them and make the edges look like flower petals. It seems like each "tier" may be one size up from the last (1") and only one layer, not two, to keep it looking smooth.

I have asked her what her budget is, waiting to hear back. I won't be taking this on unless its a big budget! Thanks for the help.

Pans used were probably a one inch diff. Like 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, etc., etc

They do look like peices of fondant. I believe someone was trying to make the same cake not too long ago.

I think it is meringue piped from top to bottom with a rose tip. A REALLY big one. She has a cake in her wedding cake book that she totally covered a cake with hundreds of really big meringue flowers. My dream cake.

I haven't heard back from the bride yet about her budget. I might have scared her when I told her it involved alot of work! I would love to try to do this cake but only if it is worth my time. Thanks for all your suggestions on how to do it.

Of course everyone knows who "SHE" is....I am an idiot sometimes.
