What is this shape called and how do I cover it with fondant

post #1 of 5

I'm talking to a client about doing a 3-tiered cake with the tiers carved like this:
http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=29118&name=10x4%20inch%20Pedestal%20Separator%20Cake%20Dummy

I've seen cakes like this before and think they're so pretty. But what is this shape called? Is it a pedestal, like the dummy?

The cake we're discussing would be 3 tiers, the bottom would be the foam dummy, and then 8" and 6" cakes carved to that shape. I'm using a very dense chocolate cake that is excellent for carving. All would be covered in fondant. Since the tiers narrow in the middle, how do you cover that shape properly and still have it look smooth? Is it just a matter of stretching it more at the top and bottom? I'd Google it but since I don't know what this shape is called, I can't find it! Thanks for your help.

You're welcome!

Isn't it irritating when your brain won't retrieve info you KNOW is there?
