Just received an inquiry about doing a cake similar to this: [img][/img]

Does anyone know who did this?

How do you think the dots on the second to bottom tier was done and how the heck is the flower balanced up there?

Any suggestions?

OK, here are some links, hopefully these will work:


If not, it's the one last uploaded in my pics

Darn it, can anyone help me post the link to the photo or do I have to upload it to my pics?

After a close look it seems like the second tier is wrapped in long strands of fake pearls.

As for the flower, I am guessing the flower was made on a long sturdy wire or stick and then inserted in to the cake.

Good luck!

They could be 2mm bead strands.

Hmm, yes I was thinking that tier might be wrapped with strands of edible pearls. It would be SO much easier/cheaper to use the fake ones, though.

Is the top flower an orchid or parrot tulip or just straight out fantasy?

the top just looks like straight out fantasy, for the pearl wrapped tier , I would just use a pearl maker and paint them in pearl shimmer mixed with alchohol.

I actually think it would look better with moulded sugar pearls rather than the strung fake pearls that it looks to be made from. And th etop flower looks like a fantasy lily.
