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.
