Poised in Pearls Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a bridal shower and it turned out great. I made rose petal pink fondant balls to go around the cake instead of white, and used pink roses. This was my first stacked cake and it turned out great. I will say that in the picture on here, it looks to me like they are 3 layer cakes instead of 2. Mine looked a lot smaller even though they were normal size 2 layer cakes. Overall, a beautiful cake and not overly difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is even prettier in person! The reason I gave it a medium in difficulty is simply because of the stacking. This is the first cake I ever stacked, and it isn't anything to really worry that I did it. I made my "pearls" a bit smaller, about 1/4", so they would more resemble real pearls and, therefore, added 3 or 4 more to each strand. I also rolled more pearls to put around the base of the 10" and 6" cakes and made my own flowers out of fondant. This is a beautiful cake and will "wow" anyone. Thank you for the inspiration!
