The Grandview on Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga.
I think this wonky wedding cake thing must be a trend and this has been my second in a month or so. I do like the look and the challenge of getting it just right. This time I used small styrofoam wedges to raise the tiers into the proper position. You just have to make sure that you make the wedges small enough to allow for the placement of the roses (which were provided by the florist).
The rest of the cake went together rather easily; some buttercream quilting, fondant stripes and ribbon, and some initials cut out using the Cricut finished it up.
When I was setting up the cake, one of the family matriarchs commented that she didn't think it was a real cake, just stacked boxes, which I really considered a compliment! :)
One thing worth noting, if you place one of these mini helmets on a buttercream cake, you should consider placing a couple of supports under the helmet. I always place the helmet on the cake, and then remove it, noting the small indentations it leaves. I'll then put a straw at each indentation to help support it.
As always, thanks for visiting, and pop back in next week to see what we've been up to!
