Soooo beautiful!!!!

I got the book from Collettee Peters from the library and she shows you how "carve" the cake to make the pillow. Someone here was also very nice to send me the instructions.

Still looks a bit confusing.

Can you tell me a little about how you carved your pillow?

Thanks!
Its always about cake!!

Pillow cakes are actually so easy to make....it was an 8" square that cooked with a high dome. Perfectly shaped. I torted it, filled it and froze it. I shaved off the edges on the bottom half to make it rounded and then I iced the cake and refrigerated it. (Only cause colette says it's easier to put fondant on a cool cake.)

Anyway...I elevated the cake, rolled out the fondant and placed it on top. Just smooth it down underneath the cake and trim the corners. It took about 3 minutes. Then decorate it any way you'd like....

Thanks for asking!!

Tanyascakes was so sweet and emailed me the page from Colettes cakes to dream on for the basic instructions of a stacked whimsical cake. I used her doweling method.....

I made the square gift box, and dowelled it. Then, I cut a piece of styroam in a wedge shape and placed it on top. The cover for that square is actually the base for the round....
After I put the round cake on top, I drove 2 sharpened dowels straight through everything down to the base. Then I put another styrofoam wedge (covered in plastic wrap) on top.

The top of the round was the base for the pillow but I transported that part separately and placed it on top at the catering hall. So, when I walked in with the styrofoam wedge showing, the owner of the catering hall said "what is that, feta cheese?" ha ha....anyway,
the little girl was beaming when she saw it. I had a lot of fun making this one!

Thanks everyone for your compliments!
