Thanks! I think it's my best cake! I have been known to scrape b-day cakes into the garbage and run out to the supermarket bakery!!!! I'm looking forward to doing more!

Actually, if you have the proper support structure, sponge and chiffon cakes work very well. I did this cake in an orange buttermilk chiffon and each tier is 4" so you get the idea that this is not a "little" cake. The bumps in the fondant are not from the cake or sloppy placement. The bride wanted little daisies etched into the fondant....and so I did.
