Search for "petal" (not pedal) or satellite cakes.

This might be similar to what you're looking for:

They're also called "Lady Windemere" cakes.

thank you for your relpy. Lady Windemere comes close but would like the smaller cakes to be incorp in the larger cake where they become one cake. Like margaret brau's cake name GustTutti Fruttin on her web site http://margaretbraun.com/cakes.html. thank you for your time.

Oh, I see what you mean.

That looks like a round cake that has been carved rather than added to.

IMHO, the best way to do this would be to make identical templates out of cardboard. Place one board on the top of the cake and one on the bottom. Elevate the cake and start carving.

I thought she used a regular petal pan for that...

edited to change photo...meant to put the deeper cut 6 petal instead of the 8 petal image.

I've made a few cakes similar to that look, unfortunately I have lost the pix icon_sad.gif
Using styro rounds, make a mock-up. See how many small cakes you will need. Place them as close together as you can around a lger circle. IE: 16" circle outlined w/about nine 6" rounds. The center open space is then filled w/either styro or more cake.
the pans posted are another option. They will be hard to ice icon_sad.gif Don't think you can use Wilton's petal shaped pans......no where near the same look. You will have to invest in the pans all4cake posted - from England I think thay are.

Yep, I would say that's a petal shaped cake made from the pans listed above. Fat Daddio's makes them too, I believe.

If you did opt to use the Wilton (8 petals...older ones had 5 petals) you could 'V' out between the petals a bit to make them deeper.
