Golden Birdcage Wedding Cake
I was inspired to turn the birdcage cake into a wedding cake, and here is the result. One of my first dummy cakes for my portfolio. I'm happy with how this turned out, although the floating butterflies tier wasn't quite how I'd imagined it. I used 10", 8", 6" and 4", with a real cake dome on top of the 4" dummy to get the shape. I also used a 2" high, 4" diameter dummy for the separator tier which I wrapped in ribbon and glued on the butterflies with RI. All the flowers were gumpaste with edible pearls.
