Square 2 Tier Bc With Calla Lilies

I made this cake for my friend's wedding. She wanted a small cake for cutting as they served cupcakes to the guests. She wanted something very simple and with her wedding flower, calla lily. The callas are gumpaste using Edna's tutorial. My first try! Edna is fantastic! For the stems, I added a small tube base at the calla with gumpaste and let them dry overnight. Then added the wire wrapped stem at the desired length using the additional base as a starting point. I bought fake onion leaf and added them in to the wrapping. They had a small wire already in them, so I curled them a bit like curling ribbon. The cake is the ?Durable Cake for 3D Wedding Cakes? recipe here on CC. This cake always gets fantastic reviews from everyone who tries it. I made this one marble at the bride?s request. I used a 9? square and 6? square, 2 layers each. (Edna also has a great tutorial on how to cut your cake level, frost with sharp edges and stacking) The frosting is Buttercream Dream (also on CC). I used the paper-towel method to get the fondant look. I wasn?t happy with the border, but it?s what the bride requested. It?s just BC colored and piped on using #5 tip.
