I made this wedding cake for an upcoming bridal shower. It was easy to assemble, and I think it's a lovely way to present a gift of towels. I rolled two bath towels for the bottom tier, two hand towels for the middle tier, and a single wash cloth for the top tier. Blue satin ribbons keep the towels tightly wound and decorate each layer. A wooden dowel rod pushed through the center of the tiers keeps the cake stable, and silk roses tucked into the top layer add the finishing touch. The completed wedding cake sits atop a cake plate made by gluing a clear glass platter and bowl together with E-6000.
This wedding cake must look pretty good; 4-year-old Mary Ashley has asked me several times when we are going to eat it.
