Well I can't see the details but what I can see looks very nice. I haven't done a wedding cake yet, have one to do but not until December. Any advise you want to share for those of us who haven't done a wedding cake yet??

For the first one, it looks good to me. Your icing is smoooth and the cakes are level. Don't stop with this one, The more you do the better you will get and the more you will enjoy it. Keep up the good work. thumbs_up.gif

rexmel, you have posted your picture and opened yourself to constructive criticism. You have shown great courage. Now, let me be totally honest with you. The cake is lovely. There is no denying that, however, I find that the presentation of the cake is lacking. On that stand, with the white background, it just looks too bare to me.

I agree with MrsMissy and gma, though. DO NOT give up. Keep plugging away and keep perfecting your craft!!!!

the true key to a job well done is the criticism you give yourself..... my mom used to tell me that all the time... supposedly it means its so hard to see the perfection because its your own, that you feel something is wrong with it so you pick.....trust me I do the same thing..... that cake is wonderful!

I think that your cake is wonderful, it's hard to do that first cake (nerves, anticipation, etc) all mixed there together.

I can't wait to do a wedding cake. Seems like I can't get away from those character cakes icon_cry.gif Can't really complain, I have four character cakes to do within the next month.

Once again, your cake is wonderful. Welcome to CC icon_wink.gif .

You did a great job! I really like the stand you used. I find that flowers(fresh or silk) always add to the presentation of a white wedding cake. Anyway...keep up the good work...the cake is beautiful! thumbs_up.gif

I think it is very pretty. Nice and simple. Elegant. I think the stand itself is enough decoration.

Well then, in that case I take back my critique about the starkness of the cake table and humbly ask for your forgiveness. You did your job and you did it well. It will be on the brides own conscience when sho looks at the pictures years from now and askes herself why she didn't follow thorugh with decorating the table. Don't give up, keep on going!

Debbi, I had to agree with you that something was missing, perhaps it was just that the table was so plain (and small). The cake is gorgeous! I just thought it seemed to need something to set it off!

Your cake looks great! I felt the same way about my first wedding cake mainly b/c I had to deal with the mother of the bride picking out every unsmooth section that wasn't noticable but in the end I said I would do it again. That's the only way to get better.
