Elcee -I think I did the same thing with the pricing thread the other day..it happens. I just wanted you to know you weren't loosing your mind!

Had you lost it you wouldn't have even remembered you'd posted it.

I don't seem to have a picture of my wedding cake where you can really see the cake, but I am going to tell you about it anyway! My mom made the cake (this was long before I began decorating) and she did a very nice job decorating it, in spite of the fact that I chose a really stupid looking topper. It was a traditional fruitcake with marzipan and covered in royal icing. She did cornelli lace, roses, etc. She was troubled that some yellowish colour was coming through the royal icing from the marzipan, so she put another layer of icing on. She was making it ahead of time so that she would have time to solve any problems that arose, smart lady that she is! Then she went to assemble it (it was 3 tiers with pillars in between) and discovered a couple of problems. First, the white pillars were a different white that the icing, so she piped ivy all over them in an effort to remedy that. Secondly, she discovered that the weight of the upper cakes caused the pillars to sink into the bottom cake. You see, we didn't know anything about cake construction and the need for support in the cake. We just thought that what you see when you look at a cake is all there is to it! Anyway, she decided to fix this problem by making the royal icing thicker still. Would you believe she succeeded in this?! She made the bottom tier of the cake strong enough to hold two more tiers of fruitcake on pillars with layers of royal icing. So the cake looked lovely and my mom and I were both quite pleased with it. On to the wedding day! The cake makes it there with no problems, ceremony goes smoothly, etc., etc. Finally time to cut the cake! The problem is, we can't! Nothing short of a chainsaw is going to get through all that royal icing! The cake was finally brought into the kitchen without even a first cut in it and the icing is lifted off, completely intact, so the cake underneath can be cut. The only picture I have of the cake is much less a cake picture and more of a very young me and my very young hubby looking confused as we attempt to make the first cut.

Amazingly, it didn't fall over. To look at it you would never know there was anything amiss. I suppose the sheer weight of all that fruitcake on the pillars was enough to keep it from moving!

Okay, I will give it a try. I need to figure out how to put a pic on here without it showing up on the home page though!

Post it on Facebook, then right click and Copy the image URL, and then paste it here. We will have to click it to see ;-)

I did my own wedding cake but if I did it again the only thing I would change is the roses spray as I am so much better at flowers and sprays now. It was a bit space.

Okay, you lovely cake-folks, I created a new FB page just for this, just for you! You're welcome. icon_smile.gif Let's see if this works.
Now remember, I did say that I chose a stupid topper and I was very young. Let's let my incredible youth excuse all the poor choices you are about to see. (Except the groom! He was no mistake! Love him!)

LOL! You do look confused! And teddy bears, seriously? I love them, lol. 

 

Did you ever do the "feeding each other a bite", bit? And that was in the 80's, right?

It was actually '92. We didn't do the feeding each other a bite thing; I don't remember why, but we didn't like the idea. (Just as well, we would have had to honeymoon at the dentist's office!)
I collected teddy bears when I was a teen and thought the topper was just perfect! I was 20 when we got married, so plenty of the planning happened when I was just 19. That is my excuse; I was a teenager.

That is a wonderful excuse! Isn't it funny how we all think we know it all when we are teens? I am so glad we can continue to grow and improve our minds, after our bodies are done growing ;-) 

 

I'll have to post a pic of us cutting our cake, it is hysterical, I look like I am murdering it, lol
