In advance, using royal icing and flower nail, make 60 tip 103 roses with tip 8 bases. Make 200 tip 24 drop flowers with tip 2 dot centers. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.
Trim 14 in. cake circle to 13 in., wrap with foil; this will be used under 12 in. cake to accommodate roses on bottom border.
Prepare 2-layer cakes for
stacked construction. Prepare and
cover cakes with fondant; smooth with Easy-Glide Smoother. Trace and cut out patterns on stiff paper. Lay triangle pattern at an angle on side of 12 in. cake and mark diagonal lines with tracing wheel. Continue marking angled lines, 1 in. apart, and then reverse pattern and mark lines in opposite direction to form squares. Align square pattern with marked top row of squares on cake, curl pattern over top of cake to continue the square design. Repeat marking procedure on 6 in. cake. Attach drop flowers with tip 2 dots of icing at each corner of square. Pipe tip 8 bead bottom borders in buttercream on both cakes.

Give your cake a great quilted look by embossing lines in a lattice pattern. Use the single-wheel Cutter/Embosser to create the imprinted lines. It?s a textured look that?s perfect for baby or garden-themed cakes.

I made this cake for a friend's 25th Anniversary and it truly was "Stunning"!!! The white roses against the white frosting, with the siver leaves was so delicate and sophisticated. The anniversary couple still had their original wedding topper which I used for the top of the cake, and I placed the "25" on the bottom tier directly under the bride and groom. Since I am not a fan of fondant, I covered the cake in Buttercream and it came out just as beautiful!
