I made this cake for all the children in my child's pre-school class. They took one day to celebrate all the childrens' birthdays. I used the footed Wilton cake stand. The bottom layer was white cake with chocolate buttercream filling. The top 2 small cakes were choclate cake dipped in tinted chocolate. Covered in sprinkles and used the Wilton candles. I used a fondant form for the letters. In retrospect, I would have used smaller letters. But otherwise it turned out okay.
