Additional Information

Step 1

3 days in advance: Make cake side dots. Cover cake boards with parchment paper. Use thinned royal icing to pipe 104 puddle dots, 1/2 in. diameter. Make extras to allow for breakage. Let dry.

Step 2

Also: Make gum paste mega flowers. To make large flower forming cups, line soccer ball pan with aluminum foil. Carefully remove foil, maintaining pan shape. Dust insides with cornstarch.

Step 3

Tint gum paste: 6 oz. yellow and 9 oz. orange; reserve 1 oz. white. Roll out 1/16 in. thick as needed. Use medium round Cut-Out to cut a yellow circle; position in center of foil cup. Use pattern and knife to cut seven orange petals for 6 in. cake. Position inside foil cup and attach over circle using gum glue adhesive. Cut another yellow circle. Attach over center. Repeat for additional cake sizes, using white circles for yellow flowers. Let dry in foil cups 2 to 3 days.

Step 4

Bake and cool five 2-layer cakes. Prepare and cover with fondant. Prepare for towering tiers construction.

Step 5

Use buttercream icing to pipe tip 3 bead bottom borders. Use fabric mold to make about 47 large fondant ribbons. Center and attach around cake sides using damp brush; trim as needed. Use tip 3 icing dots to attach puddle dots to ribbons, about 1 1/2 in. apart.

Step 6

At reception: Assemble tiers. Attach flowers to cake sides using 1 in. balls of fondant and damp brush.
