I saw the above cake design and thought that is just the sort of thing I'd like to try out for my mothers 60th. I am planning to do 2 tiers stacked. How shall I plann this? Do I also pipe roses on the outer edge of the largest tier or do I leave it plain (If I do, they will have to be smaller roses as there isn't enough room). I am worried that doing buttercream all over the cake will be messy. Can I cover the sides with fondant and leave the top of the tiers for buttercream swirl roses? Your ideas will be greatly appreciated
Earlier today I saw this cake and what feels like hours later searching the forums I found it again!
Not sure if it is what you thought might look messy (I didnt quite understand your question) but I think it looks really good definitely could be messy if you need to transport it far though!
Thanks for your reply, lovely cake! What I meant was, will the buttercream run into the fondant sides and cause it to go soggy. It will probably be OK. I have now decided to do a number 6 and 0 cake with rosette piping. Will it be too difficult to fondant the sides?
