Additional Information

Step 1

In advance: Make flowers. Use gum paste and instructions from Flower Cutter Set to make 44 dogwood flowers; make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.

Step 2

Also in advance: Make ribbons. Use Fabric Mold to make 55 large and 55 small ribbons. Center small ribbons over large ribbons and attach using damp brush. Let dry 24 hours on cornstarch-dusted, waxed paper-covered boards. Brush with white Pearl Dust.

Step 3

Finally in advance: Prepare board. Using largest pan as a guide, cut board 3/4 in. larger on all sides. Prepare and cover board with 38 oz. of fondant tinted yellow.

Step 4

Bake and cool 3-layer cakes (trim one layer to 1 in. high for 5 in. high tiers). Ice smooth with tinted icing. Prepare for Stacked Construction>. Using tip 5, pipe a line of icing on back of ribbons and attach to cake sides; miter ends for a tight fit at corners. Use fondant to shape an oval mound 5 x 3 x 2 1/2 in. high. Position on top. Use icing to attach flowers to cake sides and over mound.

* Combine Lemon Yellow with Golden Yellow for yellow shown.

** The smallest tier is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of servings given does not include the smallest tier.
