Designed for a friend’s 70th Birthday, a surprise party. Willem is Dutch, and his wife thought it would be fun to do something a little kitsch. Twelve layers (six stacked tiers), alternating vanilla and chocolate with raspberry filling. Coated in ganache and covered in fondant. Top is RKT, windmill sails are gumpaste on cookie pop sticks. (I cut them so they’d fit snugly and secured them with a pin to the end of a third stick embedded into the RKT.)
Those darned shingles on the sides took forever, but I do like how they turned out. Biggest problem was lack of stability; I didn’t adjust my usual approach to account for all those tiers. It leaned a bit, but we shoved it into the corner so it was less obvious. :) Thanks for looking!
