Stucco Trio Cake

A bevy of red fantasy flowers beautify this romantic heart cake. Attractive tiers are gracefully displayed on the Hearts Floating Tiers Cake Stand and finished with White Pearl Beading.


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

At least one week in advance: Make 7 large and 22 medium gum paste flowers. Seven of the medium flowers will go inside large flowers to make fantasy flowers.

Step 2

Also in advance: Make 6 large and 20 medium gum paste leaves. Tint 1/3 can gum paste green. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut leaves using large and medium Cut-Outs. Place on thin foam and score veins using veining tool. Let dry on medium and large flower formers dusted with cornstarch.

Step 3

Prepare cakes for rolled fondant by lightly icing with buttercream. Tint fondant ivory; cover cakes and smooth with Fondant Smoother. Reserve remaining fondant.

Step 4

To create sponging effect, dip crushed waxed paper in thinned royal icing and dab onto cakes.

Step 5

For bottom borders, roll reserved fondant into 1/2 in. diameter ropes; twist pearl beads around each rope, about 1 in. apart.

For 6 in. cake, make 22 in. rope and use 52 in. long pearl strand; for 10 in. cake make 36 in. rope and use 84 in. long pearl strand; for 14 in. cake, make 48 in. rope and use a 106 in. long pearl strand.

Step 6

Position borders. Attach flowers and leaves with dots of royal icing.

At reception: Position bottom tier, then two top tiers.
