Rose Stencil Wedding Cake

This weekend we delivered another wedding cake to The Grandview on Lookout Mountain.  And this wedding cake was all about roses.  It's hard to tell in this photo (I have a better picture below), but I used my rose petal stencil on the sides of this cake.  And then each tier had a layer of roses in between with a nice little bouquet on top.  It seems like most of the cakes I take to the Grandview are all cakes I have to put together at the venue!

I'm not sure how other decorators carry cakes that have to be assembled at the venue, but it has always been a problem for me.  I decorate the cakes on the column plates, but I'm always a little afraid of traveling with them on these plates.  The day before the delivery it came to me!  I could just put the separator plates on a styrofoam dummy and carry it that way.


As you can see above, I used an extra plate to make the indentations on my foam dummy. I actually had to use a small knife to dig out some of the extra foam, but I still wanted the separator plate to fit tightly.  Then I just sat my cake into the foam block and popped it into a bakery box.  It was super stable and traveled very well.  If you click on the picture you can also see the detail on the rose stencil.
