A bride-to-be wants to have this cake done for her wedding in June. The sizes of the cakes are 12", 8" and 6" The bottom tier is in chocolate and the other two tiers will be dummies. She wants the flowers and vines in purple instead of blue.
In light of this, can I get assistance with the following questions:
Can I use Americolor violet to get purple?
Should I add dowel rods to the bottom layer (what tutorial you recommend)?
There is a glossy look to the cake and flowers, how was this effect achieved?
Is there a tutorial on how to make the vines on the cake?
What flowers is this and the tutorial for same?
The border for each tier looks like mini pearls (not edible), could you confirm?
What size of cake board is recommended?
I saw craftsy is offering a course on making swags etc, so I will sign up for it, with about two weeks to go before the wedding, there is still time.
Any other suggestions to execute this wedding cake will be appreciated, thanks.
