Elegant Simplicity Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a friend's wedding in September. She absolutely loved it. Since I needed more cake than the three tiers supplied, I also made two satellite cakes and I wanted them to match the main cake so I put them on the 2" globes using a piece of plastic dowel cut to fit the globes which gave the globes the needed strength to support the cake. It worked great. I iced the cake in buttercream (bride request) and put a fondant ribbon around the bottom of each cake instead of the satin ribbon. The bride didn't want to have to remove the ribbon before serving. I will not hesitate to make this cake again if requested.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used marshmallow fondant that I made and added a touch of blue to. Added a dark blue ribbon around the bottom and it turned out very pretty. The globe pillars really gave it an elegant touch. Everyone was impressed and it was fairly simple. I did have a hard time getting the ribbon to lay flat but a little royal icing helped. Royal icing dries hard and holds it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i made this cake for an event at church, baked 2 inch 10,8,6 torted filled it with strawberry filling, i covered it with buttercream decorated it with dots. I placed artificial flowers on top. i enjoyed making this cake just had to be sure that the balls were placed correctly on the second and and bottem layer, so they would not look off set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a wedding out of two layers and it worked beautifully. We had to trim the inserts to fit the shorter layers, but it was not hard to do at all. The ribbon had a bit of trouble sticking, but just added more frosting behind it and it worked beautifully. We put a layer of raspberry filling in between and it was quite yummy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my friend's wedding. I had never made a wedding cake before, so I was very nervous. This was the perfect "starter wedding cake." It's a simple, clean, modern design. The main suggestion I have for the globe base set is to make sure you cut the pillars exact so the plate fits on them and is level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is beautiful! It's what I was thinking of when I tried to envision my wedding cake-only with square tiers and different separators. The only difficult part I can think of would be the ribbon around the layers. What kind of ribbon, how wide, etc.? Other than that, pretty simple!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake is very simple yet elegant above all it is very easy to make even a beginner can make it without much difficulty. However, care has to be taken to make sure that the fondant is extra smooth and flawless. I am definitely going to make it for my friend for her wedding in August

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used the ball set-up for a wedding cake and the bride loved it. The design really adds beauty to a simple cake. The bride also wanted fondant pearls scattered about the entire cake. I have used the set-up on other Wilton wedding cake designs. I would recomend buying this product.
