Hi I am planning on making a truffle tower for my daughters wedding. I have already made over 150 truffles and they look fabulous. I just need some ideas on how to create the tower effect similar to this..

Would you bake a few cakes in graduating sizes stack them up then shape the cake. I then thought of some how fastening the truffles on. Any help would be so appreciated.

I'm thinking of a base cake like you suggested and then cocktail sticks to hold the truffles on, a bit like the 1970's cheese and pineapple party hedgehogs. Not sure if that would be practical or not.

If you use icing to stick the truffles on to a sugar paste base it would be hard to prise them off once it was set so I assume you would use buttercream underneath and just squish them into it.

I have a lovely choc fudge icing recipe to use underneath :) Thanks for your help
