Thank you! The cake was actually a steirofoam dummy cause we dont have ovens that big here in Honduras.

This is the most beautiful,mesmerizing,awesome cake I have ever seen. When I become successful and need a cake this big. I will know who to contact. How do you manage to cut it.

Thank you so much for your words. We're located in Honduras so it would be hard haha

It is amazing. Was the bottom layer baked in one pan? Or was it two parts?

What did you use to support and stabilize the height and weight of the cake? This is flawless like you mention you should be very proud indeed. Also how did you stretch the fondant so wide for the bottom tiers?

It was such a big cake that it wouldn't fit on my oven so we made it from steirofoam. there is no need of stabilising when using steirofoam. To stretch the fondant on the bottom tier we used the dining table of my best friends house, which was pretty big (glass) and first one person started rolling by the time it got large enough one person kept rolling from one side and another person from the other side. once it had the measurements, we took a clean new broom stick (its large enough) and fold the fondant over it in a one fast movement, lifted it up and dropped it on the steirofoam drum and smoothed it out.
