In advance: In royal icing, make 108 tip 102 apple blossoms with tip 1 dot centers. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry on small flower formers.
Prepare 2-layer cakes for rolled fondant. Prepare 12 and 16 in. cakes for
Cover cakes with fondant; smooth with Fondant Smoother. Divide 6 in. cake in 8ths, 12 in. cake in 12ths and 16 in. cake in 16ths. Stack bottom tiers on
foil-wrapped cake base. In buttercream, pipe tip 3 triple drop strings at division marks, 1, 1 1/2 and 2 in. deep. Attach 3 flowers at string points with dots of icing. Pipe tip 21 shell bottom borders.
At reception: Position top tier on Spiral Separator Set. Arrange flowers in flower spikes and insert in cake top.
*The smallest tier is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of servings given does not include the smallest tier.
The drop string is traditionally used as decoration on the sides of the cake and is the basis of more ornate string work. Called a "drop" string because the line of piped icing is allowed to "drop" or fall, by itself, before reattaching it to your cake. Pipe a row of single strings or multiple strings in rows of two or three.
This 5-petal springtime flower, most commonly seen in white or soft pink, is virtually the
same petal shape as the wild rose, but uses a smaller tip creating a petite flower. The
dot stamen are typically positioned like the holes in a 5-hole button. Dry them on flower
formers for a more natural look.

I beautiful elegant "simple" cake. Not too much design which is what makes it so beautiful. Great for a quick wedding cake or anniversary cake. Looks great with some color to it as well.
