I am making a wedding cake for my niece. She chose a ruffle cake (Maggie Austin) as she only wanted a small cake and then kitchen cakes to serve her 170 guests. I had planned a 9"/6". She calls me today and tells me the stand she is using is 17". Will the 9" cake look silly on a stand that big?
I can make the cake any size I want (it's my wedding gift to her), just not sure if a 10"/6" will look good in that design? Would you take it to a 3 tier? 12"/9"/6"?
Also have a question about those ruffles. I used 100% fondant to practice on a dummy cake Saturday. They are rock hard today. How do you cut them? Won't they crumble when she cuts it at her reception? I will have to decorate the cake the day before as I have to travel with it the day of the wedding.
