I made my own wedding cake a few months ago. I am mostly happy with it, but would have loved to add more of I'd had the time. Unfortunately, I had to decorate the whole thing (or most of it) in our hotel room on our wedding day. I posted a pic in another thread last month about making your own birthday cake.

I love the fountain and stairs cakes! I live in the Netherlands and a lot off people here still like that style! I just ordered the swan pillars today and I allready have the fountain, the stairs,the pillars, the bells, some cherubs and I still want the dove picks! Haha than its all complete, some paople call it tacky as can be but I don't care one bit!

The only thing I still need are the bridesmaids and the groomsmen.

1987 We were probably one of the last couple to get sugar bells but it's what I loved most about our cake. (you can see our florist decided it was was Ok to use pink instead of peach carnations in my bouquet)

I have a question relating to the older style cakes. How does one cut a cake that is covered in RI?

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .

I had it on mine and I don't remember it being hard to cut, although the knife they gave us is pretty sharp! I guess there is something in it to stop it during super hard (glycerine I think).

As far as I know all the american old school cakes were covered in buttercream, maybe the english ones were not?

English wedding cakes used to always be covered in royal icing, I don't know how common it still is though.

Here was my August 2011 wedding cake:

 

 

It was actually my first ever tiered cake (besides my practice cake to make sure this plan would work).

It was supposed to look like this Martha Stewart Weddings cake:

but I was afraid to leave it stacked in the venue's freezer overnight, so I asked the venue coordinator if she would just set the top cake stand on top of the bottom two tiers after she wheeled it out of the fridge and placed it on the display table.  Somehow we severely miscommunicated and she thought I just wanted just the cake on the top of the bottom two tiers and not the stand.  I was a little upset - you only get one chance to do it how you want to, right? But I don't think anyone else even noticed. I just about had a heart attack when we went around back to cut it though - there was a full on HAND PRINT of missing buttercream from where she'd picked it up!

 

Also, I'm a newbie to the CC forums, so I just wanted to say Hi Everbody!

Welcome Lisaelanna! That is a beautiful cake and you did a great job. Did you confront the Venue Cordinator for her hand print?

I am not a decorator, I just have some good cake recipes. My daughter asked me to make the cakes for her wedding (June 22) and I reluctantly said yes. I used cakecentral to answer the many questions I had to even know how to do this. So thanks to all of you that post on this forum!!

 

The cakes would be pretty embarrassing for a professional baker/decorator but they tasted good and the bride was happy. :) Through a series of mishaps, I was very, very late getting to the venue, the room was very dark and there were several ladies helping get the cakes on the table so the ribbons and burlap flowers could have looked better but this is how it turned out.

 

Carrot, red velvet, german chocolate and the bride's cake was banana.

My daughter is 29 and disabled when she found out we were getting married all she wanted to do was make our cake and she did, and I think it’s the most lovely wedding cake I’ve ever seen.  <3

I think that is the sweetest story. She did such a great job. What an amazing memory for you both!

For not knowing what you were doing, it turned out well. A few little things here and there but I am sure your daughter loved it. My mom is a great baker but not a decorator either. I can't imagine what anything she made would have looked like. lol.
