Three tiers are covered in fondant. The top and bottom tiers have the center pattern stenciled onto the fondant with thinned purple royal icing. Normal-consistency royal icing was then used to pipe the scroll work above and below the stencil, as well as the pearl borders of each tier. The center tier was gently covered with thinned pipping gel and Wilton's Sparkling Sugar for a crystalized look. Silk flowers topped the cake for a bit more purple color.
