I have a customer that would like two different state flags wrapped around two tiers of a three tier cake. could you please give me any ideas on how to accomplish this? I thought about asking a friend if she could print out the flags on edible sheets but how would i get it long enough to wrap around the cakes? Any advice would be wonderful!! thanks!!

Try looking at this page and scroll down to the Alamo cake.

There's one Texas flag on the side of the cake. You could take the first of your two state flags and repeat it around one tier. Then do that on another tier with the other state flag. Does that make sense?

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Look upvthe parchment sheet fondant transfer. I don't know much about it. Hopefully someone who knows more can tell you if this is the right way to go.
Hey everybody! Check out google.com ! This is clearly an attempt to direct traffic onto that site and away from cake central. Because everyone knows you can only have one browser open!

Like the picture shanter shared. Print out the template on card stock and then cut the fondant with an exacto knife.

How about making two flags out of fondant, larger than the tier it's going on, and draping one on each tier like it is a fabric flag laying on the cake. If you can get the draping right, it may look realistic.

Google "draped flag on cake." These are pretty much what I had in mind.

What state flags are you using? If they are really complicated, you could print them on wafer paper and put that on the sides of the tiers. For example, you wouldn't want to have to make George Washington out of fondant.........
