I am planning on making a cake that resembles a bouquet of roses. I would like the center to be indented and a ribbon tied around it. The sizes I am using are 8, 7, 8 with BC roses on top. I can stack and carve, but will I need a cake board and dowels in there for support? Next question, how do I attach a fabric ribbon around the BC on the bottom? TIA

Is the 8, 7, 8 cakes two layers each? If yes, I would say that you need dowels and separator boards. As for the ribbon, BC will discolor most ribbon colors, so youll want to be sure to put something, like wax paper, between the two.

I would say, for the sake of serving ease, if they're 2 inch layers, to dowel and board after 1 1/2 layers so that they can be cut into 3 inch high servings easily, instead of 6 inch servings
