Should be easy… the good thing is it’s 3 little tiers, so you could really take your time with each one.  Also, the beading along the base of each would be very forgiving if they weren’t perfectly smooth at the bottom.

i think the hardest part would be that middle layer since it’s got that wierd curve… gotta keep it from getting wrinkled in there.

I would use buttercream to do the beading… edible pearls aren’t very tasty.

If you’re hesitant about your skills, or you haven’t worked with fondant and want some background; you can sign up for cake decorating classes without much difficulty; at least in the US (and hopefully in the UK, I’ve never investigated!).  Larger craft stores that sell Wilton Cake Decorating supplies will sometimes have cake decorating classes – including ones about working with fondant. (Information is usually available form the store or from the Wilson website).  Local community learning programs (“Liesure Learning” or “Community College” depending on the area here) also offer some more advanced courses, which would likely be a bit more pricey, but cover a wider range of techniques.

Once you’re familiar with the material and a technique, covering a cake in a simple fondant layer isn’t that difficult.  The curvy middle layer will be a bit more challenging than a round, but a good fondant is fairly “stretchy” and should accommodate the shape.  Adding the (very pretty!) frills will be another step up in skill, but one that a crafty home baker could likely master with some practice.  They appear to be a very thin layer of fondant that is cut and then attached with the buttercream piping.

If you do make one of these cakes, post pictures for us to see! 🙂

In my opinion its defenetly easier to use fondant…you could rehears with cartonboard boxes or something else.

I think its a cool cake, if you had any issues covering it I think it will be with the middle bean shaped layer, but you can do it!!

You can make the beads by rolling out a long thin sausage of fondant, cutting it into equal size pieces, and then rolling them into balls. You can buy pearl powder to brush over them to make them shiny. Then just stick them on with a bit of royal icing!
