For the longest time I've wanted to try something truly modern and different, with a traditional touch. This cake afforded me that very opportunity.

A truly simple way to add impact to a cake is to incorporate different heights into each tier. Taupe fondant was applied to the outside of the cake and accentuated with a white gumpaste rose with falling petals. A minimalist approach to decorations is a great way to showcase the drama of unequal tiers.

Splendid indeed.
