This was a rush job. I started baking the 10" coconut and 8" chocolate on Saturday morning at 10:30. Made the cakes, the icing, the MMF, the royal icing dots and then after the dots dried I hastily painted them with violet luster dust. The cake wasn't settled well since it was freshly baked but I got it to my mom's house an hour away and then put it together. This was for my sister. She's getting married in Gatlinburg this week sometime! Dohhh!
