When placing the fountain on a cake what is the best way to conceal the cord and how can I place the cord without it sinking into the side of the cake? Thank you for any suggestions...........

Hmmmm, maybe a little greenry??? That's a tough one..... you might put something under the cord where it will touch the cake. Something hard?

Sorry, wish I could help more. The cord of course, usually goes out the back of the cake.

I have been wondering about something like this too... I'm wanting to put some christmas lights in between a couple of tiers to highlight an arrangement on a separator plate. How do you bring the cord out of the cake without it being really noticeable...

Sooooo.... Bump! icon_biggrin.gif

I would wrap the cord in plastic wrap, and use the greens/florals to help conceal the motor base and cord. If there is anything I hate- it's seeing that stupid motor base! icon_mad.gif

As for white lights between tiers- either find battery operated strands-one for each tier, or position the cord so it trails behind one of the pillars- you could also atttach the cord to the pillar with low-tack glue dots.

Any idea of where to find the battery operated lights this time of year? I looked at Hobby Lobby and Radio Shack...
