Prepare board in advance: Tint 36 oz. fondant black. Reserve 2 oz. black fondant for plaque. Cover foam core in Fanci-Foil Wrap. Brush with piping gel and cover with fondant. Let dry overnight.
Bake and cool 2-layer tiers. Prepare for rolled fondant covering, 24 oz. for 6 in. tier, 36 oz. for 8 in. tier, 48 oz. for 10 in. tier. Tint remaining 8 oz. fondant red with a small amount of black.
Prepare cakes for stacked construction. Imprint fondant of 6 and 10 in. tiers with flower and leaf cutters. Using tip 1 and black royal icing, decorate imprints with brush embroidery as follows: Flowers: Outline petals with zigzags. Use a damp brush to bring icing towards center of flower. Work one petal at a time so icing does not dry. Outline inner petals and repeat. Finish by piping a spiral at the flower center. Use tip 2 and black royal icing to add scrolls and dots. Leafs: Outline one side of a leaf at a time. Use a damp brush to bring icing towards center of leaf. Pipe veins, add dots. Roll out red fondant 1/8 in thick. Cut ¾ in. wide band 32 in. long and wrap around center of 8 in. tier, using brushstrokes of water to attach. Also cut a 3 ½ x 2 3/8 in oval. Roll out black fondant to 1/8 in. thick and cut a 4 in. x 2 ¾ in. oval. Attach red oval to the black oval using brushstrokes of water; position on cake. If desired, trim off red band where oval is positioned. Using tip 2 and royal icing, pipe initials in oval. Using tip 6, pipe bead bottom borders.
Serves 82, reserving the top tier for the first anniversary.
