You did an amazing job, congratulations. Some people are totally made for cake, and all your practice and dedication really paid off.

Did you manage to make the flowers or did you have the by them? Either way it's beautiful.

With those comments she was able to reach her goal. 

Agreed.  But there were some not-so-nice comments in the beginning of the thread, beyond the helpful negativity.

I do not think her obvious success was BECAUSE of the negativity but IN SPITE of it...as clearly shown by her comments in the beginning of this thread....she ignored the negative and pressed on knowing she could do it and she did..you go girl!! You clearly have a talent. Pursue it!!    Negativitiy is NEVER positive.

I bought a box of roses from GSA and colored them with petal dust.  I did manage to make 5 of the roses my self, I'm super proud of them and managed to work them in on the cake.  I'm really glad I didn't try to make all of them though, I don't think I could have managed to do so, I was out of town for a week and a half prior to the wedding and started prepping for the wedding on Wednesday afternoon. I know that may seem like plenty of time... but I was stressed.

I would agree.  I almost quit this project due to comments such as "your going to make news" or "you'll end up on e-bay" ect.  Thank goodness for my husband who was there to reassure me.  I think it is one thing to offer realistic advice, but completely different to attack someone and belittle them.  I knew I had the skills to do this, I wanted advice on what brand of this and that to buy and also advice on what support system to use.  I am grateful to the ones who were kind and offered advice, and to all of the people who sent me private messages with help and words of encouragement.   This forum has some talented people who were very generous with their time and information.   Much of what I did was directly related to the people who helped me.  

 

And again, thanks for all of the recent compliments! I'm relieved that this project is over... but anxiously awaiting a new (hopefully smaller) project! 

 

 

 

EDIT - I'm also blow away by the amount of views and comments this topic has received!

Posting a question on any public forum invites everyone to respond. We each have our own way of communicating. (Unfortunately even nasty trolls get to have an opinion and often divert reasonable discussion.) As the OP you appeared to handle it well. Your cake was a success! The best to you and your husband!!

I am so happy you went through with all of this. I did not start reading until yesterday (it took me all day to catch up!) and I could not believe what I was reading at first!! You are strong to weed through all that negative and push on with your passion which I could tell is cake decorating and family. This turned out amazing! I went to Culinary school and fondant just scares me. Once again great job!!!

You really did do a good job.  You should be proud of the cake you produced.  I'm really glad everything worked out so well.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!
