My youngest daughter and I decided to tackle making my oldest daughters wedding cake!!!! Since both of us have so many other duties in the days before the wedding we wanted to make a dummy cake we could do ahead. We are planning on a four layer square shaped fondant covered cake with gumpaste roses. We are planning on seperating the layers but only want a short 2 inch seperation between cake layers. We do want one real layer of cake for cutting. I have not been able to find any clear instructions on making a dummy cake. Any adive , links or supply links or instructions would be appreciated. One of my main questions is does it matter if you make the top or bottom layer the real cake? I would prefer it to be the 6 inch top layer if thats safe. Also how far ahead can we make the fondant cover dummy cake? Thank you!!!
