Step: 1

In advance, make approximately 100 gum paste flowers: Prepare Gum Paste Mix and roll out 1/8 inch thick; cut flowers using pansy cutter from Floral Collection Set.

Position 10 inch cake on 10 inch board and position bevel top. Prepare cakes for rolled fondant by lightly icing in buttercream.

Step: 5

Cover cakes with rolled fondant; smooth with Easy-Glide Smoothers.

Step: 6

This cake serves 57. The top tier of a wedding cake is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of servings given does not include the top tier.

Always place a separator plate on the
cake before you position any figurine or ornament. This protects both the cake and your keepsake. For extra stability, secure your ornament to the plate with tacky craft tape.
