Step 1

Make cakes. Prepare batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool two 6 in. and two 8 in. cake layers. Prepare buttercream icing following recipe directions. Torte, fill and stack for 2-layer cakes, 4 in. high.

Step 2

Cover cakes with fondant. Use spatula and buttercream icing to lightly ice cakes to be covered with fondant. Cover cakes with white fondant. Reserve remaining fondant.

Prepare cakes for stacked construction. Stack cakes on cake pedestal.

Step 3
Make and attach fondant circles. Use fondant roller with orange guide rings to roll out fondant 1/16 in. thick. Use third smallest (1 5/8 in.) cut-out to cut 20 circles. Use largest (2 3/8 in.) cut-out to cut 25 circles.

Prepare thinned fondant adhesive recipe. Use brush and thinned fondant adhesive to attach fondant circles randomly on cakes, bending as needed to fit over sides.

Step 4

Decorate fondant circles. Prepare royal icing following recipe directions. Tint portions rose, blue, red, yellow and green. Use tip 3 and full-strength royal icing to pipe dots in concentric rings. To make each ring of dots, pipe the largest dots first, evenly spaced. The smallest rings have three large dots, other rings have four large dots. Pipe gradually smaller dots between large dots.

Dots in Circles Tiered Cake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it! A very Fun look, the dots look like the "old" time dot candy that came on paper strips. I would have put a solid color fondant band between the top and bottom cake for a Pop of color and a bit more finished look. Adding a thin string of icing in the same color around the circles might also make individual colors Pop. I would definitely make this cake with different colors for a 4th of July party
