janelwaters that is exactly how I did my TTs and I have never had a problem with it. I used white chocolate instead of RI. Always have chocolate and all. I guess it would be better to use RI as it doesn't melt.

jlynn you're killing me!! That was too cute.

So far, so good guys... I have it covered in fondant, airbrushed and stacked, now I just have to add the fondant details. I probably won't finish it tonight because I've been baking and decorating since 6am. Ugh. But I did all the brownie bites, cheesecake bites, and fruit tarts, almost done with the cake. Tomorrow I have to finish up the cake and make 12 dozen cuppies. I also won't assemble the fruit tarts until tomorrow cuz I don't want them sitting and getting soggy. I am on schedule, so I am thrilled. And, like I said, the cake isn't too bad so far! icon_lol.gif

Oh come on guys... it's not going to be all that good. It's turning out ok though. I am not super angry like last time. Hehehe. I am doing the method like that video that was posted earlier where you stack it all, then cut the slant. It worked much better than the other method I tried where you torte at an angle and stuff. That just didn't work for me.

Now I need some creative advice... here is the situation...

The whole open house has an Alice in Wonderland theme. The cupcakes are going to be iced some in white, some in red, some swirled to simulate the 'painting the roses red' thing. The cake is bright spring colors per the clients request, and around the top two tiers I made ribbon roses, some white, some red. I also did some beads on white wrapped wires for a fun and funky look. Now, another idea I had was to take some images of the characters and print them as edible images, back them with fondant, then place them around the tiers for visual interest. Do you guys think that would add or detract from the cake? The bottom tier has the diamonds, middle tier has stripes, top tier is going to have polks dots I think. (Haven't done that part yet.) In my head the characters look cute, I'm just worried that they might turn out looking hokey and I don't want to cheapen it. The customer is an artist and has an eye for this stuff, yet she gave me complete creative control. Only told me spring colors, and to focus a little on the painting the roses.

Can you tell I'm tired? I'm babbling. God bless you guys for sticking in here with me.

Personally, I think it might look a little cluttered with the characters. Having said that, I think you should make a couple and see how YOU like it. You have a great eye for what looks good on a cake without overdoing it.

Could you put very small ones on the sides of the top tier inplace of the polka dots?
