Dear Rose and all the senior members.
Hello. I have been a fan of Rose and have tried several cakes from tTCB and would like to thank her & all of you for the support without which baking would not have been a cakewalk
I am posting a picture of a wedding cake which has to be done in three flavours -chocolate with chocolate ganache, carrot with cream cheese and vanilla cake with pineapple. The cake is in two tiers - the bottom tier being in 10” diameter x 14” tall and the top tier 8” diameter x 8” tall.
Please advise if I need to put a cake plate after every 4” for the base tier to support the weight. Also, should the chocolate cake be covered with fondant separately, carrot cake separately and then tiered and covered once again with fondant to get a smooth 14” height finish.
How should the pattern be done. Should I use an edible sheet to cover the cake ot airbrush using a stencil for the pattern.
Last but not the least, any suggestions as to what should be placed on the top tier so that it does not look empty, at the same time it doesnot take away from the main focus point.
Thanks for all the help and look forward to hearing from you.
