I found this cake on Pinterest and love it! The link was just to the picture so I couldn't ask how to create it. I know there will be people on here who can help! How do I make the bottom tier? Is it just of strips fondant rolled very thin? What would I use to attach the flowers? Any help is appreciated!

I don't think that can be done with fondant. It's gumpaste, almost for sure. Yes, rolled very thin and attached very carefully with sugar glue, one strip at a time.

I wonder if it can be done ahead by a attaching it to a round gumpaste circle then add the ribbons...let dry then attach to a cake? hummmm may have to experiment on this.

Thanks for the input ladies! So I'm going to attempt the cake this weekend for a friend's bridal shower. The cake will be covered in crusting buttercream and I worry about the weight of the gumpaste flowers. I hope it ends upworking out!
