Several days in advance: Make 100 lilies using royal icing, 1 5/8 in. lily nail and tips 67 and 14. Insert stamens, using all varieties, and let dry 1 to 2 days.
Ice 2-layer cakes smooth in buttercream and prepare for alternate 2-plate set-up with Spiral Separator Set. Use toothpicks to make guide marks 3/8 in. apart along top edge of each cake. Pipe tip 3 lines at guide marks down cake sides; start with a 3/4 in. line, then pipe 1 1/8 in., 1 1/2 in., 1 7/8 in. and 2 1/4 in. lines. Reverse order of lines from the 2 1/4 line, ascending to the next 3/4 in. line. Repeat for all cake sides. Pipe tip 3 balls at end of lines and tip 2 balls on lines.
Position lilies along top borders. Pipe tip 5 fleur de lis on back base of each lily to support on cake. Pipe tip 363 shell bottom borders.
At reception: Assemble cakes on stands. Attach ribbon to cake base with double-stick tape. Position ornament on base and base on cake.*
*Always place a separator plate, or cake board cut to fit, on the cake where you position any figurine or ornament. This protects both the cake and your keepsake. For extra stability, secure your figurine to the plate with double-stick craft tape.
**The top tier is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of servings given does not include the top tier.
