I covered the whole cake with fondant and then smoothed in normal way as you would with a round cake. I trimmed the fondant just over the holes of the number as I found it impossible to cover it all in one go.Then I covered the area around the centers with strips of fondant. I covered up the seam with a fondant pearl border.I tried for ages to get information on the internet and couldn't find any.

I have just made a four tier wedding cake and have to transport it to the venue for my daughters wedding tomorrow.Can anybody please give me any advice on how to put it in the car so it does not move about. It is well dowelled. Thanks
Thank you all for the great advice, I will be using these ideas and let you know how it goes and what flavour filling I used.After the wedding next saturday, I will let you know what the guests think of the filling. Most will be family so it will be good feed back.
dazeyjo, thank you for the idea of mixing buttercream with jam. I have just woke my husband up and asked him to try some. Bless him, he did and said it was really lovely but very sweet. Do you know of any way of making it not so sweet?
