Only the bottom layer is cake. The rest is a dummy cake built from paper mache hat boxes (cheaper than styrofoam). All iced in bc and covered with MMF. The topper is floral wire with beads and MMF decorations. I had so much fun making this cake and got an order for another one upon delivery. Inspired by Lindy Smith and other designs seen on cake central. Still need lots of practice covering cakes with MMF, but it was fun to try.
