This is a dummy cake I did for a bridal fair. This wasn't the original design. This design just basically developed on it own. I originally was going to do all white tiers standard stack with scroll work cascading down the front from small to large as it reached the bottom. But I realized I didn't have enough fondant in white but I did have black fondant so I covered 3 in white and 2 in black. Then I decided I wanted to offset the stack. Again however with the front being the typical front of a more graduated stair step effect. But I left the room and walked back in and saw the cake from the side angle showing one side as a stair step and the other as a straight tower effect. I really liked that so decided to make that the front. Then I originally was going to hand paint the scrolls but while looking for something else in my equipment drawers I came across a scroll stencil I have for scrapbooking. So I decided to use it with royal icing instead. Then I added silk flowers (mainly because I was out of time to do gumpaste flowers) and this was the end result. If I sell this design I will use gumpaste flowers if the bride wishes that or can still use silks if they prefer, or real flowers too.
