I'm stressing myself out over this cake request! She wants a red velvet bottom & middle tier, cherry top tier, with cream cheese icing....NO fondant....with a simple red rope & bow in the center of both tiers. Then writing on the bottom. The only cream cheese recipes I know of are heavy and dont crust. Also transparent. I also think the red rope & writing will bleed onto the icing. And you will see the actual cake through the icing as well unless its 5 inches thick!!...
