First Wedding Cake Question! - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Thread Starter 

I joined ICES and met many wonderful people at the DOS last spring.  One of the ladies gave me her number and told me to call if I ever had any cake questions....so I did!  I emailed her a picture of the cake and she has made the same cake, same size tiers and everything!  She actually invited me to her home and she will teach me how to do it without any worries!!!

Yeah, duh, I know....SMH.... Excuse me for not having 100 gum paste roses on hand to set up a complete mock cake to show you that a 6,8,10,12 isnt going to look like a 6, 10, and 14. White on White Wedding cake.....Bride wanted a 'Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise replica - only smaller.....design similar to Wilton Wedding Cake Book cover - minus the ceramic topper.....This was done using a 14", 10" and 6 " fruit cake, gumpaste rose,s, dusted in 'superpearl' dust. A total of 82 roses in 3 different sizes used to complete this cake. Bride is thrilled!!!!

Yes, I did my own wedding cake! Saved a fortune, but was still putting roses on it with curlers in my hair 15 minutes before I was supposed to walk down the aisle! All Buttercream.

Good luck! Don't forget to pay yourself for all that work.

I apologize,  I didn't have my glasses on and I thought it was a picture of a real cake you had stored on your camera.   I really do appreciate you doing that and all of the help from everyone!

This is what I would do:  if you are worried about roses being too heavy for the edge of the tier, place a cake circle on top of the tier, the same size as the cake.  For example, for the 8 inch cake, place an 8 inch circle on top of the cake.  Cover with buttercream.  Place dowels in between for support.

Except that would really look stupid come serving time.
