Ok, so I am doing a cake just like this this weekend. It's such a new thing that I can't find any tips on how to do this! Does anyone have any experience on the best way to do this? Thanks!!! icon_smile.gif

It looks like they were stuck onto cake dummies, possibly with tooth picks. Hope that helps. Or that someone that has done this can tell you how.

i agree, looks like dummies. i would imagine if you stuck a toothpick into a cake with a cake ball. the cake ball would be to heavy

If you're up for the challenge, I'd use royal icing to glue the cake balls onto the cake and stack them ontop of each other; and since there should be some room on the edges between layers the cake balls should be able to sit along those edges. But, just an idea...never done this.

I would make them as cake pops with the proper sticks on then make the holes in the dummies and pop the cake pop sticks in then all the guests will be able to take one at the end of the day. Basically i giant cake pop cake and i would agree they are dummies so holes can be easily made in them.

hmmm...it looks likke a French Croquembouche. Of course the creme puffs used in the croquembouche are probably much lighter than a cake pop but they are usually attached to a foil cone with carmelled sugar....so cake dummies would probably be more appropriate for an American Cake Pop Cake

Ok here it is. After HOURS of stress and (almost) tears, and the styrofoam flaking everywhere, we decided to go with this design and the bride LOVED it! She's at her reception as I speak. icon_smile.gif

I'm glad things worked out ok. I was at a place where the decorator designed the cake balls like the first picture. She decorated the dummy cake the same color as the cake balls...then she used tooth pics to hold the cake balls on the cake. as the guest went up to be served we simply took a napkin to take the flavor we wanted. The tooth pic stayed in the Cake Dummy & it was a huge success for her

Ya we figured that's how it's done, but of course this bride wanted cake pops, not cake balls, so it was such a mess. lol Thanks again everyone! icon_smile.gif

That looks amazing! What kind of coating do you use if you don't mind me asking? I love that burnt orange color.
