I am making a 3-tiered fondant cake, with fondant draping, and a big bow in the middle tier, sizes 14-8-6. I have to deliver the cake pretty far, and am terrified of delivering it already all stacked. I would just prefer to assemble it on site for security. LOL

Should I assemble the bottom 2 tiers with draping, central dowel it...and then put the top tier with attached top draping, on site? I haven't ever done the draping before, and am a little worried it wont look as "flowing" if I have it cut between the 2nd and top tier. Suggestions? When you have to assemble on site, do you have the draping already attached onto the tiers or do you do all the draping in one piece on site?

This is the cake they gave me for a design example of what they want, (but without the flowers), and with a big bow in the middle. icon_smile.gif

I would take the cake assembled, using SPS. I'd attache the draping and bow onsite. You really do need something to hide the "join" area, or what I like to call, "hiding the ugly."
