This was my first wedding cake, wasn't too thrilled on her insistence on the plates/pillars but she gave me some freedom on the decor. I think it turned out pretty well. All buttercream with different designs on each tier, champagne colored satin ribbon and pearls. Gumpaste orchids and cala lilies and a gumpaste monogram topper. Cake was chocolate fudge for two tiers and lemon for the others.
