Hi CC'ers

I want to do 3-tier cake that has some piped royal icing bands attached to the sides of the cake. I got the idea from the Wilton Wedding Cake book and the bands were piped over the Wilton flower fomers using a 2D decorating tip.

According to the instructions in the book, you are supposed to push the RI bands in the sides of the cake that is covered with buttercream. It is a gorgeous cake but I am wondering if the bands will stay put and wouldn't fall off since you are staggering them on top of each other.

Has anyone done this cake before?

Can anyone please let me know if they had any problems attach the bands to the buttercream? Did they stay put? Can I transport the cake already assembled?

I appreciate your comments.

Stacey

The technique is similar to the one shown in this cake but horizontal and not vertical. The RI bands are a lot smaller and will staggered in rows to resemble a basketweave.

Hi all

i tried uploading a copy of the cake that i want to do but CC isn't accepting the attachment.

if anyone of you have the Wilton Wedding Cake book, it is called "Gather Your Dreams".
