I want to make a similar cake to the one pictured. I've found a stencil that is almost EXACTLY a match to the scroll pattern on the wedding invitation and think it will be great! However, this is my first attempt at stenciling and I want to be sure to order the correct size for the tiers. The cake pictured appears that all of the tiers are the same height. Do you think these are 4" layers or 5" layers? There will be 55 guests and I need enough cake to save the top tier for the couple.
Any advice is very welcome concerning the height and size of tiers and the appropriate size stencil to acheive this damask look. Thank you in advance!!!
PS - I am intending to practice the technique on dummies before I try it on the cake. I am planning royal icing over fondant. If you have advice about that - I'm all ears.
