Fake Cakes Part 2: Construction

Day 1 in the wood shop: The 4-tiered wedding cake foam is cut. I was informed that this is too small. Since I never had a traditional wedding cake and haven't been to a wedding in eons, this was news to me! I am going to remove the top tier and add a larger 15" bottom layer. I'm looking forward to the time when this will look less like a styrofoam hat and more like an edible dessert.

Day 2 in the wood shop: 6 1/2 of the cakes are cut plus three tests to resolve floating issues. I ran out of styrofoam so off to Lowe's this evening to acquire more materials. I hope to have the rest cut, glued, and shaped tomorrow and caulked by the end of the weekend. [Photo courtesy of Chet since I left my i-phone in my office]
