As you can see by the pictures, my attempt to make the cage was a disaster. I followed instructions,and everything went well until I had to separate the cage from the GREASED wax paper. As I was separating it,it just started breaking no matter how hard I tried. It had three layers of royal icing, but that didn't help. The only part that survived was the top part. Thank God I had two molds that enabled me to find a close match and look good together. After all the frustration, it didn't turn out bad. Thank God. I don't think I'll try doing the cage again. The top tier is a cake dummy. I wanted to gift it to the bride.
