  1. In advance: Prepare cake base. Tint fondant rose. Prepare and cover cake base with 24 oz. fondant.
  2. Reserve remaining fondant. Bake and cool 2-layer cakes for 6 in. and 14 in. tiers and four 1-layer cakes for an 8 in. high 10 in. tier. Ice cakes smooth in rose. Prepare for stacked construction. Position on base board.
  3. Divide reserved rose fondant into four equal portions. Knead in 2 teaspoons Gum-Tex to every portion. Make dimensional triangles. Roll out fondant 1/16 in. thick, working one portion at a time. Cut circles using metal cutter. Place circles under storage board flap until ready to use. Divide circle into 3 sections; indent triangle shape on each circle 5/8 in. in from edge with plastic ruler. Fold circle edges up to form triangle.
