AOk not my first cake cake but my first stacked, first fondant & first decorated. I'm pretty proud of myself. I know it's nothing compared to some but this stinkin think took me 6 hours.[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3226022/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

AThanks! I still have a love hate relationship with fondant . Makes me so mad sometimes. I swore off fondant cakes but have had more people ask for them.

Well you should give yourself a nice pat on the back for a job well done.The cake will look lovely in your portfolio.

 

I cussed my fondant covered dummy cake out tonight and put it the corner for being bad, lol. Now you have given motivation to keep trying.

 

Happy Baking and Congrats on your first tiered cake!

Congratulations.  It's a nice cake. I've never stacked one, so I admire your taking a big step up.  Well Done.

AThank you thank you!! I was so scared stacking it! I've watched countless tutorials and different ways to do it. With straws, dowels. I did dowels and used 4 in the first tier and a long one through both.

AThe beads are actually Pink Sixlets! Found them at Walmart! The silver ones are from Fancy Flours, silver dragees. The cross is a pink chocolate cross mold sprayed with edible spray paint. I forgot to get white melts and didn't have silver luster dust for fondant!

For just two tiered cakes I usually use Bamboo skewers for my dowels. It works great!  :)

Great Job and looks great!  How did you attach the silver dragees together that are hanging off the cake? Glue?  They look so seamless.

AIn actually just used a wilton 3 tip and just used buttercream. Maybe not the best idea but it's all I could do at last min. I didn't want anything to cause the coatings to melt off especially the chocolate Sixlets. I've never worked with Silver Dragees before so I'm not sure what to use to get them to stick. Any recommendations??

The cake made it in one piece so I didn't too bad I suppose lol.
