If I knew, like I know now--I would have never done a non-edible topper nor asked someone of that caliber to put one on top of the cake.  LOL

Mine is here on my Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=361611777220725&set=a.182181688497069.47292.165857490129489&type=3&theater

I loved it but it was definitely stressful making! The piping on the sides could have been neater...but in all I was very pleased.

Thanks for all the awsome response! I love the cakes and especially the cookie 'cake'. My parents 20st wedding aniversary is this weekend and these cakes are a great inspiration! I would love to see more cakes!

It's fairly easy to tell how old some of us are by dating our cakes!!!!!

Here's our cake from 2007:  https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=139613346249&set=a.139487621249.110744.139480956249&type=3&theater

 

I sweet-talked the venue owners into putting the cake on the grand piano, and a few years ago, they put it on their facebook page.   I can't take credit for the cake--I began decorating about 2 years after we were married.  The bottom layer was hummingbird, middle key lime, and the top was irish creme. 

 

As we were cutting the cake, that's when I learned there is a good side and bad side of a cake.  It was 94 degrees outside (yes, the ceremony was outside, but we quickly moved inside for the reception) and the AC was having trouble keeping up in the historic event venue we had rented, so there was a big crack down the back side of the cake.

Here is mine and my wedding is today! Only been making cakes a year and am self taught so although there are flaws I'm fairly happy. Perhaps I should stop reading CC and get moving! Wish me luck!

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

This is my wedding cake.  I really wanted a fondant ribbon at each base but the bakery said they could never match my navy.  So I bought a HUGE roll of ribbon and I still have it.  This cake was bought from one of the most prominent bakeries in my city.  The caterar cut the slices to small and I had a ton of cake left over so my husband and I munched on it for a week.

Here's ours, it was some challenge for me but i'm so pleased i did it..... Not what i would have said whilst making it though!! ...although the absolute hardest thing was deciding on a design to meet expectations!

Yes this was my cake from local grocery store because that is all I could afford. IT was bad to say the least but at the time I had no clue. The lady tried to convince me out of it to begin with saying she couldn't do it. I said sure you can. It wasn't great but hey it was what I could afford. She went way crazy with the dots on the top.lol and the stripes on the bottom look like she was drunk. On that day however I didn't care I was getting married. I didn't like the flower designs and couldn't find a cake I liked. I got married in 2006 and I'd like to say I was the trend setter to modern cakes..wink wink..I also had it made in chocolate and every bakery wouldn't do it for me. Except the grocery store! Isn't that funny people get so set in their ways. My mother in law was mortified! She tried for a whole month to change my mind about the chocolate. lol

Hey smittyditty, I think your cake looks delicious, the stripes are a bid badly done but whatever. Why wouldn't any baker make this cake for you?

Because I wanted it chocolate! GASP not a white cake...and then the lecturing on me how I'm an idiot and grooms cakes are chocolate..yada yada

Its my cake i'm paying for it and I don't like cake as it is. SO I wanted chocolate and that was something the other bakers refused to do. Or they refused to do it in buttercream.

IT tasted great in fact we got soo many compliments on the taste. Like I said I only notice these things now and they bug me. Then I just looked at it and said well they aren't great but its better than I could do...lol..I'm easy to please.
