I'm wanting to make a 2 layer birthday cake for DDs first birthday. I've never made a tiered cake before and also don't have much experience with fondant.. Few questions:
- what sort of cake works best when tiered? (And is also easy for a beginner to make!)
- can I just buy and colour premade fondant?
- do I need to put anything on the cake to get the fondant to stick?
- how far in advance can I make the cake and how should I be storing it to keep it fresh for her birthday?
Any tips and advice would be appreciated!
Edit: meant layered!
