Dotted with Drama Cake
Breathtaking simple beauty of a pure white dotted cake topped with fresh or silk flowers. The fluted bowl separator set allows each tier to be admired on its own.
Cake serves 60.
Several days in advance, make royal icing dots in a variety of sizes on a cake board covered with waxed paper. Thin royal icing and place in parchment bag; cut a small opening in parchment bag. Pipe 1/8 in., 1/4 in., 3/8 in. and 1/2 in. circles on waxed paper covered board; let dry.
Position 8 in. cake on 10 in. plate and 12 in. cake on silver base. Pipe tip 5 bead bottom borders on both tiers with buttercream icing. Randomly attach royal icing dots on cakes with royal icing.
At reception: Place 6 in. plate on 12 in. cake then add bowl and 10 in. plate with cake. Use display cups to arrange flowers for top of 8 in. cake.
Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.
