AHello all!

I am a newbie but will like to duplicate this 3 tier cake in buttercream. I figure I can use my extractor to get the rope around the bottom but I don't know how to do the fabric looking drape flowing down the cake and what type of flowers are these? PLEASE HELP!

Your link is going to a general google search for 50th anniversary cakes rather than to one cake. So people may not know which cake you are referring to. I can only infer from your description that you were talking about this one http://s597.photobucket.com/user/mom2one_112/media/BLOG/50thAnniversary3copy.jpg.html. If not, you may want to find the photo again, go to the actual page for the image and copy that url. GL!

You can't duplicate draping with buttercream you've got to use fondant to get that effect (o.k. a few people can do that in buttercream.... but it's extremely advanced work to pull off.).

AThanks, I think I confused some....I want the cake to be buttercream and the drape will be fondant but how would I get it to stick to the buttercream?

AYou might want to brush a little piping gel on the back of the fondant swag and attach to top and bottoms of cakes. I usually take a gumpaste flowers and stick to the connecting ends to cover them. I hope this helps! Make sure your butter cream cake is chilled when attaching.
