This is the finished product.
I started with a lot of cake! layered with icing...
Then I ice the whole cake.
Cover in fondant.. (terrible picture) add dowels to hold the weight of the other 2 tiers..
Put it all together....
This cake did not turn out how I wanted it to, but it did serve the purpose I was going for. I am aware of specific details of the Oakland Temple that were not incorporated in the cake. I kept it pretty plain.
The cake was too big for the board I used too....oops!
The 4 "cones" around the cake should have been raised about 4 inches to replicate the actual Temple.
Feeds about 160!
Took 3 people to lift the cake! LOL
Every cake I do is a learning experience =)
