Here is my first attempt at a wedding cake. I tried to keep it simple and everything went fine until I got to the reception place and after I stacked the tiers, I put the topper on and had trouble from there. The topper was long and did not have a good base. So I pushed on it a little thinking that would help it stand. Well the fondant started cracking right away. I had some buttercream and filled in the cracks and tried to stop what I knew was coming. Eventually the whole back side of the top tier fell off. I rushed out to a local grocery store and purchased several 5" rounds and had them put white buttercream on them for me. I took them back and put some decorations on it and put it on the cake after I took off the original one. No one ever knew the difference, but me.
