I am making a 3 tier cake covered in fondant with swiss dots. The border will be a one inch fondant ribbon. The cakes will be 4 inches tall. I don't know if I should do two or three rows or how far apart to space the dots (I do have the Wilton cake dividing mat). There will be a 6, 10 and 12 inch cake. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. This is the first time I have done a cake this size and my first wedding cake. Thank you.
I usually eyeball it to get it going and congrats on your first wedding cake you'll do great
I use three rows of dots. For the six inch cake. I'd put a double row (one dot high, one dot lower) at the 6 marks. Then go back and "eyeball" the center dot.
For the 10" cake, I use the 10 marks. etc.
