This is such a beautiful cake! It looks like a hard cake to make but if you have a good surface to lay down a big piece of fondant to make the diamonds then it should be piece of cake ha ha ha! With a ruler measure the first diamond you will place on each cake once you have the first one on the rest are easier to put on. Make sure you also have diamonds cut in half for the bottom and top of cake.
