This is my 2nd tiered cake and it came out so much better than the first. Its a 12 inch and a 9 inch vanilla cake covered in buttercream with fondant accents (stripes and stars). The top carousel kit was purchased from Wilton and I painted it, which was super time consuming. For support I used 8 bubble tea straws and I made sure everything was level. So thankful that this cake didnt lean! TFL!
