My first tiered cake!!! 35th Anniversary Party!!

This was the MOST fun to make ... it was the durable cake recipe for all 3 layers. Bottom was choco fudge, middle was white choc w/raspberry filling, top was lemon. All done in buttercream (1/2 butter 1/2 Crisco) with MMF. Roses on top were mmf/gumpaste mixture. It didn't turn out *exactly* like I had hoped ... but overall I am pleased! Forgot the right tip for the border, so it is a little too foofy for my taste, but it had to do. WOO HOO! I did it!!!

Thanks everyone! For the durable cake receipe, I used pilsbury devils food + jello choc fudge pudding mix. Then Pilsbury white cake mix w/white choco pudding mix, BC lemon cake mix w/lemon pudding mix. To each of those mixes, I added the sour cream/egg whites/etc that the durable cake recipe calls for. it was very dense, moist and definitely durable! Most importantly, delicious!! The raspberry filling was Smucker's raspberry preserves whipped w/BC (we use heavy whipping cream in our bc, YUMMY!).

that is beautiful!! I have tried the MMF once - I had such a hard time - too sticky. Any pointers on how to make it better? Thanks Becky

Becky - if the MMF is stiff enough but just sticky, try cornstarch on top and underneath while you are rolling it. If it is too goopy, you may need to knead in more powdered sugar. I have also had good success with using Crisco to oil my rolling pin & surface, but occasionally this can make the fondant separate easier when rolling it thin.
