1st and Base tiers in progress.

Entire Cake is done with FondX fondant and Royal Icing.
Flowers and Leaves were made with FondX Fondant with Tylose added.

All molds and piping were done in white icing

After designs were applied they were painted with a mixture of Amerimist Airbrush Ivory and Amerimist liquid pearl sheen. I thought I would get a soft ivory color - instead I got a soft Gold color

Stencils used were first very lightly applied with thin ivory royal icing and then they were overpiped with white royal icing and a #2 tip.

Fill in shapes were cut using the Filigree Cutters.
Butterflies are Rice/Wafer paper with royal icing bodies

Lines were painted on the 1st and 3rd tiers before molds were applied

Cake now

Color is the same - lighting is different. To have it fit in my display shelf I had to remove the base board under it. Turn it 1/2 turn and then I added more butterflies to make it look right in that corner.

Display Shelves

Dannie built these two display shelving units for me years ago. There is room for 4 tiered cakes or multiple smaller cakes.

Three foot between shelves for the tiered cakes.

Because we live on a dirt road in windy Lubbock, TX most display cakes don't last very many years. Special pieces are put into glass display cases for a longer shelf life.
