Thanks! I thought the top and bottom tiers looked wider. I totally forgot to tell you the 12 inch will be a dummy. I guess I should've had that second cup of coffee before jumping on here. I know this sounds dumb, but would you use any type of support system in the bottom tier? This will be my first time using a faux tier.
She needs around 120, but she wants the tiers to look like the pic. She's not worried about having to many servings, since she'll have company in town (she said they are sweet heads). There will be a small grooms cake that will feed around 20-30.
I'm doing my first buttercream wedding cake in December. I've worked with flowers on fondant cakes and they work well. I'm really concerned about the flowers on the front falling off, or tearing the cake. I use SMBC on my cakes if this helps. Her is a sample pic the bride sent me.
