Hi all, I was wondering if i could stack a six inch fondant cake on top of an eight inch buttercream frosted cake. Will it look weird???? I want to make the fondant cake, and i have alreaady ordered the buttercream eight inch cake. will the buttercream cake hold the fondant cake? Thank you in advance! please answer quickly!
Without seeing the designs of each I have no idea if it will look weird. You will be the best judge of that. I would dowel it if you stack it - otherwise your 6" cake could possibly - sink or crush your bottom cake. Especially if you are travelling with it. Either way - dowel supports should be used in my opinion. Good luck!
It will hold the cake if you have support under it. You need to use dowels, straws or bubble straws. I would recommend the SPS system if you have time to order it.
I can't say how the cakes will look together since I can't "see" them. What will they look like?
The bottom cake will be covered in white frosting with a ruffle border, the top cake will just be white fondant with the same border.
I think it will be obvious that they are different. Besides the texture being different, most likely the whites won't match either. I am not saying, not to do it. What is this cake for?
It's for my daughter's b-day
AI've done a few mixed medium cakes. I thought they looked great.
AOh you were asking if it's a structurally sound thing to do. Yeah, as mentioned above, needs proper support.
Do you think I could see a picture of your mixed medium cakes?
I recently did a purple fondant cake with a white buttercream cake stacked on top.
The question has already been answered.. just want to say if anyone didn't click on AZ's photos, do! You're in for a treat
AOh gosh, thanks howsweet, that's nice of you. I hope no one thinks I was fishing for lookers, I just can't cut and paste real well from my phone.:D
I was the only one fishing for lookers! I'd just never seen your pics all together like that and wanted to share.
Not sure if any of them are in these galleries now that I think of it. They're here though. John Deere one, rosettes (not well done rosettes, might I add...grrrrr) and sugar gems..might be a couple others.
Your robot holding a tiny birthday cake is one of my all time favourites.
