Cascading Roses and Fondant Draping

Cascading Roses and Fondant Draping

This cascading roses cake was a very special and an absolute delight to make.


It was specially made for my niece Audri and her new husband Nick. The bride was very particular, but what bride doesn't want the perfect wedding cake right?

Four Delicious Flavors


The bride wanted four tiers AND she wanted four different flavors. So we came up with the following: the bottom was a square chocolate cake filled with chocolate filling. The second layer was a square vanilla cake filled with whipped cream filling. The third layer was a square lemon cake filled with buttercream. And finally the top layer was a round red velvet filled with cream cheese filling. All of these scrumptious recipes can be found on this website.

The Unique Design


The three squares were in different positions which added interest to the design. For the topper, I wanted to make a rose bouquet so I used 15 of the two dozen roses that I had made a couple of weeks prior. I used the other roses to put on each layer to make the cascading effect.

I Love Draping


My favorite part is the draping. I loved making the draping but I also really enjoyed making the stencils that I put around the border of the board. I think both the draping and the stencils around the base added such elegance and sophistication.

Stress Free Delivery


As far as transporting, this it was not a big issue for me, because I only had to drive a mile to get to the reception. So before I went to deliver it, I gathered everything I would need to do the finishing touches.

Delivery Tip


Put dowels in the each of the tiers, then place each cake in individual boxes to make it easier to transport. When you arrive at the reception, do all the finishing touches.

Final Touches


The cake layers were arranged first and then I put the rose bouquet on the very top. I arranged the roses on top of each layer next which gave it that beautiful cascading effect. And finally, I rolled some fondant for the draping which is the last thing that went into the cake.
