Additional Information

Step 1

3 days in advance: Make lace pieces using half-circle patterns. You will need 384 small, 18 medium and 210 large lace pieces; make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.

Step 2

Also: Make fondant heart. Knead 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex into 6 oz. fondant. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Using pattern and knife, cut out heart. Lightly imprint inner heart outline using toothpick. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board. Decorate heart with royal icing. Attach lollipop stick to back of heart, extending 3 1/2 in. from bottom; let dry. Using tip 2, attach large lace pieces around heart edge; let dry. Pipe tip 2 bead border on inner heart edge and tip 5 bead border on edge. Let dry.

Step 3

And: Prepare cake circles and base board. Using pans as a guide, cut cake circles to match petal shape (one for each cake). Cut base board 1 in. larger on all sides than 15 in. Prepare and cover base board with rolled fondant.

Step 4

Bake and cool 2-layer cakes; ice smooth in buttercream. Place 15 in. cake on prepared board. Starting at top of cake, insert small lace pieces 1/8 in. deep at a 45° angle downward with edges touching side to side (each horizontal row with six pieces per petal division). Space rows 1/2 in. apart, working toward bottom of cake. For 9 in. cake, insert large lace pieces as above (each row with three pieces per petal division); leave three bottom rows open for placement at reception. Pipe tip 5 bead top borders.

Step 5
At reception: Assemble cakes. Position five large lace pieces around each pillar. Insert three bottom rows of lace pieces in 9 in. cake. Position topper.

Insert heart topper.

? Always place a separator plate, or cake board cut to fit, on the cake where you position any figurine or topper. This protects both the cake and your keepsake. For extra stability, secure your figurine to the plate with double-stick craft tape
