Lyndsey, make it as easy for you as you can. Cover both cakes in the white/cream sugarpaste, cut the colored strips and put it on the bottom tier. Make the colored strips quite thin and nobody will see the difference in height.
Remember, nobody will inspect the cake as closely as you. Most people will look at it from some distance and won't notice such details.

Yep, that's the link I was going to post. Great tutorial. I think what cakeroach meant by "commas and periods..." is that it's kinda hard to read sentences without them. I had to go back and re-read your post a couple of times as well. No worries though and welcome to CC!! icon_biggrin.gif
Happy caking!

Any updates on how your cakes went linzimh?
We'd love to see photos.

And as a teacher, I'd like to say well done for putting yourself out there in such a public way.

Welcome to CC.

Howz the cake comming? And I second emcm51. I typo all the time. My brain can spell most of the time, but my fingers don't always listen.

Any one that is going to make an issue out of typoes just has their nose in the air trying not to smell their own stink. Pish-posh! Ain't none of us in here perfect!
