Attached is a picture of a wedding cake that a friend insists on having for his wedding. I tried to talk him out of it but in vain.

I feel I must at least give it a shot. Please give me suggestions on how the waves on the sides can be made. Any ideas on the flowers?

Wow! He dosen`t want much, huh? icon_smile.gif The flowers look like hydrangea blossoms to me with a pearl in the center. The waves...... I think if I were doing this cake I would use fondant to which extra tylose has been added, roll it out in circles, prop it however you want it using paper towels or TP and let it mostly dry. When it is still moveable just a bit I would stack the layers of waves so that all the dips and bumps fit together nicely and then let it dry completely before I added it to the cake.

I'm new to all this but I would use a 50/50 with gumpaste and invest in pins...lots of pins. As the "waves" start to dry, remove the pins. Any holes (small as they may can fill with matched royal.

That cake is by Marina Sousa of Just Cakes, and somewhere here on Cake Central is a post from her describing how she did it. Think she used toothpicks to hold up the 50/50 fondant/gumpaste waves, but I can't seem to find that post to give you a link icon_redface.gif .

Thank you ! Thank you! Thank you!
