Rated 5 out of 5 by dhperr from I do not consider this cake to be difficult, but relative to other designs, more time-consuming and requiring more organization. The basics of the cake construction are the same for this as any stacked cake. Because you have a combination of fondant plus imprinted fondant plus cut-outs, the baker must carefully plan the details. There is no really difficult piping or need for proficient decorator skills. With good planning, the Wilton tools and products make this cake fun and relatively easy. The issues that you would do well to consider beforehand are: 1)The flowers are done in advance--just be sure to be gentle with them, as the petals can break easily; 2) The large daisies are weighty when finished, and if not secured well to the cake, will easily pop off. If you apply too much pressure the petals will break. Mine were best "glued" with a small and mushy (from wet fingers) bit of fondant--next time I may resort to a small batch of Royal Icing for glue; 3) Be careful also with the imprint mat--if the fondant stretches while imprinting, the pattern is skewed. Just be certain that all the stretching is done with the first rolling and not the imprint molding; 4) Be sure you apply consistent pressure with the imprint mat to prevent the design from being too faint in some spots; 5) Carefully plan beforehand the mapping of the cake perimeter for the swag before construction. Again, all of these points are planning-related and not a matter of difficulty of design or construction. Follow the instructions and you will have a gorgeous presentation. This cake is breathtaking when complete. It was the third cake for me, and the recipient was really taken back with how beautiful it was.
