First Wedding Cake - Page 2

post #16 of 31
Your practice cake looks great. I'm no pro, so listen to them, I'm just a home decorator who does this for fun. Any way.... Again, your cake looks great. I think it's the lighting, but does your quilting go all the way to the top? I'm in love with your piping work on top, simple yet beautiful. The only thing I'm not a big fan of is the boarder on top. Just personal opinion. I prefer clean lines. Again, it looks great. I'm sure you'll do fine on the wedding cake.

Hi. I was piping for practice. Yes, the final did go all the way to the top. That was the first time I used the quilting tool also. The entire cake was for practice because I am doing a wedding cake for my daughters boyfriends brother...as a gift. Thanks for the compliments. I am trying.

Thank you for all your information.....  Once I have put the fondant on should I leave them on the counter until Friday morning to finish up decorations on Friday.  I am delivering the cake at 1:00 p.m. on Friday.  Not a lot of decorations pretty plain., but there is some detail work.  I do plan on stacking when I get to the hall.

 

I am going by your schedule.  Out of freezer on Wednesday and into the Frig., then out of the Frig to cut, crumb coat and fill on Thursday.  Then (?) back in the frig or leave out on the counter for the fondant to dry?  Then Friday we are decorating.

 

You have been most helpful.

 

Thanks again C

Romantic Moments hit the nail on the head. I've been baking and decorating cakes for about 35 years. many wedding cakes under my belt. I just bought supplies to make a 4 tier cake close to $200.00,I to work full time in management position. This is a labor of love. Didn't see how large the tiers are 14 inch can be difficult to handle

regarding refrigeration. support is the key and transportation use the rubber back shelf ling under the cake. Leave 2 hours or more for set up just in case and full supplies for any repairs. If possible always bake 3 weeks in advance. Picture is lovely good job.

Yes I did.  But I did chicken out when I transported the cake.  I assembled it at the site. 

Thanks everyone...
