I have a cake to do that has roses in between the tiers but the picture shows the cakes with no plates showing (no bottom border either). How do I best achieve this look? What is the best plate and/or support system to use? The cake is going to be a 14, 10, 6. Thanks!

I use Sharon Zambito's method for "borderless" cakes! Do you have any of her DVDs?

No I don't. THe cake is going to be covered in fondant which I hope will make for better bottomless border.

Yes, could be easier to handle being fondant, but she shows both ways! Good luck with your cake!

Do you know which DVD this in on? I have a couple, hopefully it's on one I already have.

Maybe you can do SPS with 1" smaller plates.. That's what I would do.
