The wedding cake is done!!

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I'm VERY pleased with it. I went to the hall this morning and set it up--took pics of it just to prove that it was perfect when I left--hopefully it will still be that way by 4:00 pm! It's constructed in a very sturdy manner, though, so I'm confident that it will hold up well.

Peacock and Debbie--I did go with Option #4--you were right about moving the iced 12" cake, too daunting of a task. It's actually completely different than the original plan being that I ended up stacking it instead of pillaring it--but it would have been the same decoration-wise, just on pillars between the tiers.

I have learned so much from my fellow decorators here, through your ups and downs, beautiful cakes and even disasters---thank you to all!!

There is a pic of the complete cake and of the detail scrolling. Notice that I "hid" the couples' monogram in the scrolling. Here it is.

Wow that turned out great! I know you're happy to have it finished. Isn't it great when you can finally put down your frosting bag, back up, and say "it's done!" I bet they will all love it! Congrats to you!!!

Absolutely Beautiful!!! I bet the bride and groom just loved it, not to mention the guests. You certainly should be proud of your work. I haven't made a wedding cake myself, but I hope when I finally do get the courage to do one it will be just as gorgous as yours!!!!

Absolutely gorgeous. I love it. Your scroll work is great, and your floral arrangement is very very pretty.
