Additional Information

Step 1

At least 1 week in advance: Make gum paste roses and stephanotis, blossoms and leaves. Make 24 roses on 22-gauge wires using largest rose cutter and 18 leaves on 26-gauge wires using rose leaf cutter. Make 21 stephanotis on 24-gauge wires using calyx cutter. Also make 308 small blossoms and 196 medium blossoms using apple blossom and pansy cutters. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.

Step 2

Also: Make draped hearts. Cover plates from 3-Tier Pillar Cake Stand Set and outside of cake pans with waxed paper. Secure pans to corresponding plates with royal icing dots. Roll 3/8 in. thick fondant logs, long enough to wrap around bottom of each cake pan. Wrap logs in plastic wrap then secure in position with icing dots. Roll out gum paste 1/8 in. thick; cut 28 hearts using 2nd largest cutter from nesting set. Using dots of icing, attach hearts around prepared pans, with heart points hanging about 1 1/2 in. below plates. Position 11 hearts around 12 in. pan, 9 around 10 in. pan. Position 8 hearts around 8 in. pan, trimming 1 heart in back to fit. Using royal icing, decorate hearts with tip 2 scrolls. Attach 3 small and 5 medium blossoms to each heart with tip 4 dots. Let dry for several days.

Step 3

Carefully remove hearts and store on large bubble wrap until reception. Reserve plastic-wrapped fondant logs for assembling cake.

Step 4

Bake and cool 2-layer cakes. Prepare and cover with rolled fondant; smooth with Fondant Smoother. Position cakes on tier stand plates. Remove plastic wrap from fondant logs used for setting up draped hearts and attach at base of each cake with icing dots. Assemble 3 bouquets with florist tape using 8 roses, 7 stephanotis and 6 leaves for each. Insert into flower spikes filled with fondant. Insert in cakes.

Step 5

At reception: Assemble cakes on stand. Attach draped hearts around 12 in. cake with dots of royal icing. With tip 4 dots, attach additional small blossoms in garland shape, 1 1/2 in. deep, starting 2 in. from top edge of cake. Attach a medium blossom below each garland point. Add a tip 2 dot above each small blossom in garland. Repeat with 10 in. then 8 in. cakes.

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

Individual hand-shaped petals are the secret to the incredible realism of Gum Paste Roses. Gum paste can be rolled very thin, yet hold its shape. As a result, your flowers will have texture and form that rivals nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the simplicity and elegance of this cake. Yes ,it will take time to get the lace flowers together but this cake would be a beautiful addition to any wedding. These flowers can be made ahead and put together and stored for this cake. To cover the cake in fondant is simple. Then putting on the floral sprays is easy. I also love the display stand for this cake. I have had many requests for wedding layers to be displayed separately as they are here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake in March 2010....my first wedding cake...my first fondant cake other than my class cake....yeah..what was I thinking? My pictures are posted in the discussion forum under "floral frost cake". I made the wedding cake, a duke grooms cake and 15 dozen cupcakes for $500. Go ahead and laugh!!! I had 62 hrs in the project. It was for my nephew. If I did it again it would have to be for a grand-daughter....If you do make this cake allow 4 hrs at least to assemble @ venue...I had 3 and really needed another hour.Best of luck!!!!! Last week in my local newspaper there was a story about an upcoming bridal show and there was a picture of my cake!!! I was thrilled. The wedding photographers had submitted it for the story. I must say all the stress over the cake was worth it as the comments @ the wedding were incredible.......

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I don't like using fondant, so if I were to create this cake, it would be with buttercream icing and roses. I might make the frosts out of fondant or possibly find pretty lace appliques to use. I'm not wild about the cake stand so I think anything you can do to cover it up is a good thing. I prefer the Crystal Splendor set myself. It gives you more options for "dressing it up".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my best friends wedding. I altered it here and there, but it turned out beautifully. Overall, I don't think this cake was hard to make, it was just very time intensive. Fondant is easy to work with and the flowers on this cake are easy to make, there are just a lot of them. The end result is totally worth the time and effort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake a couple of months ago and It came out so good. The only thing is I used colors in this cake for a couples aniversery. I took colors from there wedding and put them in the colors for the flowers. It was for a 25 yr aniversery and the couple were so happy with it. I would love to make this cake again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the look of the lacy frost around the base of the layers! I think this is beautiful, and I can think of other purposes for a cake like this with some simple alterations, suited to other events or party themes as well. This is beautiful! Would love to learn to make this one. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks easy to make. As soon as I saw this beautiful cake, I knew I had to make it for someone in the near future! I emailed it to my co-worker who's son is getting married next month. A perfect wedding cake for the Christmas holidays! Ms. J's Cakes
