Ok I need help! I am doing a cascading(waterfall type) rose cake. I am doing them in graduating color too. But this is my question how do you make the roses look like they are flowing down the cake and not just on the sides of the cake? I have to have this cake done by wednesday so any help would be great! Thanks!

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1419498.html I want mine to look like this but do you have to build up the icing to get it to look like a smooth waterfall?

No, I wouldn't build up the icing. It all has to do with placement. The "waterfall" effect is made when you fill in the gaps with the green leaves, giving it the look of a "blanket" of flowers rolling down the sides of the cake.

Indydebi, thanks for the advice, but do you think my royal icing will work or should I pull an all nighter and make them out of fondant or gumpaste?

Heck, I make all of mine out of BC.

I just put buttercream on the back of the flowers and it works well for me.
