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

I'am a teen and I'm thinking I will love making wedding cakes forever! I hope I am right!

It may very well be that you may! Not everything I thought as a teen was wrong. icon_wink.gif Seriously, though, you absolutely can know what you want at sixteen. But you also have every right to change your mind if you discover you want to try something else. Sometimes we fail to give teens credit for their strengths; you are obviously very good at cake decorating.
My oldest son is sixteen and I see some marvellous things in him. He has so much potential and so many plans. He also makes his share of mistakes that I can only occasionally get away with mentioning.

Haha, I wanted to be a pastry chef when I was 16, I should have stuck with that instead of bouncing around all the other professions!

The only thing I wanted at sixteen was to date everyone in the world, and I told my mother that! Must have terrified her.

Here is my wedding cake, my husband liked my mothers' from the 60's she also had 5 tiers. I made the 6 inch in a traditional fruit cake. and the rest was Styrofoam with section of cake for cutting. we had sheet cakes. I found out after the wedding that some people didn't eat any of the other desserts because they were waiting to try the "wedding cake" I made. They had no idea that is was fake. hee hee hee

haha, I just did a wedding cake, all fake except the top 6" tier. There was a dessert buffet, so they didn't think there would be any issues with a lack of dessert.

 

But people just went up to the cake with their own plate and butter knife and helped themselves to the top tier, was waiting for someone to cut into styrofoam. Nobody was brave enough to start in on the other tiers though, lol.

that is too funny, don't think anyone tried that. we did have the 6 inch on our first anniversary, and it was just as I made it.

Guess not, they did want to save it for family, at least enough for 2 small pieces got rescued so the bride and groom could actually have a proper piece each at home.

That was a new one for me, I've never even heard of people helping themselves to wedding cake, especially when it obviously isn't being served.

Here is our cake from Sept. 2012. I made this a month before our wedding and froze the whole thing, iced and all. The cake was delicious, no problem with freezing at all. My family member stacked the cake at our venue. This was only the 2nd or 3rd large tiered cake I've done, so I was quite happy with it!

very pretty,

Here is ours 2004, My sister made it for me and my oldest daughter decorated it. And it was delicious. We had the top a year later and it was just as good then as it was on our wedding day. My hubby still says that was the bet cake he has ever had. Even though I have been making cakes since for years. He liked this one better.  My 22 yr old grandson is getting married in Sept and he wants one just like it.

Beautiful cake. How did you freeze it without the piping getting messed up?

Thank You! I iced the cakes with final coat of buttercream and decorations and then I put them in the freezer uncovered for a while so the icing could get nice and hard. After that I took them out of the freezer and wrapped them with several layers of plastic wrap, not too tight, not too loose. When it came time to unthaw the cakes, they were taken out of the freezer and the wrap was cut off immediately while the icing was still hard and they were put in the fridge in their boxes. You definitely want to take them out a few days before the event to be sure. I did use real
Buttercream (no shortening), not sure how it works with other icings.

I was not planning on making my wedding cake until I thought of this! I was so pleased with the taste too, the cake was extremely moist. Weddings are stressful enough without having to mess with your cake day of. I DIY'd almost our entire wedding, a lot of work but worth it!

thanks I will. I know a lot of people think the fountain and stairs are tacky now and out of date, but that is what they want. That is the only thing that he has any say in also. She has everything else all planned out like she wants it. They are also going with the same colors as mine.
