this cake was difficult for me to make. The sugar sheet "stars" would not stick in the cake and I had to cut slits into the top of the cake to put the stars into. Once I got the stars into the cake, I was please with the effect, that is, until the stars started drooping over. I made this cake for my sons birthday party and was extremely disappointed that I had to take the stars off the cake. It looked horrible.

Those circle stars sure make the cake pop! this would be just as effective on a double layer cake.
