Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a Pastor that was retiring. On one side I made an arrangement of Calla Lillies cascading down and a scripture on the other side. I tiered this cake on a sheet cake and it was beautiful! If you don't want to use the fondant on top, you can get the smooth appearance by Icing the cake with buttercream then using Viva paper towels with your Wilton fondant smoother and smooth out the top. Turns out beautiful.
