Why?

Although it will most likely be an interesting wedding cake, it's certainly not the largest.

I think they are referring to it being the most individual decorators working on one single cake.

Aha. Didn't think about that.

I wonder how many people here are actually going to take up this 'offer'? Maybe one, perhaps fifty, a thousand? It'll be interesting.

I know I am doing some pieces. I think they should put a sign up list to see how many sign up to do it. Or even someone post a poll.

Ok, not to get people in a tiff, but even with a poll and people comitting to making something, how much of it will arrive intack and usable? I am worried about making something that get broke in the mail! Do we need USPS or FedEX or is there even a preference?

Oh, Jackie!! Congrats to you both. I think this is an amazing idea for your wedding cake. I would love to participate, but I am scared I would make a horrid piece that would never make it on. I wouldn't want that. I know that it is going to be a glorious cake for a glorious day!!! Who knows, maybe I will get up the nerve to try out something to add. You both have been such a great help in my cake experiences of the last few years. I wish you both a wonderful life together!!! God bless you!!!
Hoping to one day have a shop of my own!

If it is packed very carefully, the pieces should arrive intact, they are not large pieces so I can't see a problem with the shipping. I am going to be ordering my 'Kit' at the end of the month & feel proud to be a part of this project for two wonderful people.

One way that people will be able to get a sense of actual participation is if people upload the pics of their completed pieces to the "CakeCentral Wedding Cake Project" gallery as mentioned on the info page thumbs_up.gif

Also I think that's why Jackie recommended using a styro ball for round pieces, and a wire skeleton for the swirly pieces--to help make them less fragile.

How cool is this idea? It's seriously cool if you ask me! I think it's neat that they want to include us in their wedding by letting us help w/their cake! WOW is all I can say!!

I'm going to make pieces.....I can't wait!!!

I have changed the instructions... go ahead and paint the shapes with any color or color combination dust from the kit.

Sorry for the initial confusion, I certainly didn't mean to make it so convoluted!


I also update the delivery date. I will need to have them delivered by June 1 2009

I would have you choose whatever is the most cost effective shipping method for you.

I think a solid piece will be too heavy. Also I would think that would take an enourmous amount of gumpaste.

I was thinking you could use styrofoam or something like that.
I would think a hollow round piece might be too fragile? (Please correct me if I am wrong)

Or If you come up with a new technique, or idea altogether please let us know!

Did anyone else want/plan to do pulled sugar pieces?? icon_cool.gif

I would certainly accept pulled sugar pieces. I just worry about how fragile they are, and problems with humidity etc. That is entirely up to you!
