This is a part 2 to my post yesterday...
here is the cake (not exact, but close enough)
the top tier will be a 6inch square covered in buttercream
here is the floral arrangement that she wants the topper inspired by (see below)
I'm afraid that anything similar will just rip right through the cake and buttercream. Is this even a possibility? Has anyone done such a tall topper on such a small tier?
That is so not goping to look good. The topper is going to overwhelm the cake and make it look top-heavy.
You can dowel the top tier for support if the couple decides to go with this.
Someone wrote in an earlier post about using straws & coffee stirrers for support for wired stars. Might work in this situation too?
how about making a "mini" or scaled down version of the topper to "fit" the cake ??
I think the topper would look really good on that cake if the top teir were larger. I just cant see it going on top of a 6 inch teir. What are they thinking?
Sorry, I didnt realize that they want a topper INSPIRED by this one, not this one exactly. I think if you just scale it down and not use so much then it will work. I actually think it would look good. Are you going to make it from gumpaste or are you suppose to use artificial materials, same as the one's in the pic.? I'm thinking you mean that your supposed to make them out of gumpaste to look like the one's in the pic.
If you scale it way down I think it may look very cool Obtaining that bronze would be tricky to me.
