Turtleshell's FD Wedding Cake!! - Page 2

I think for the ladders, you should just use a ruler and press it into the cake. Then you can follow the indentations and have perfectly straight ladders!

Otherwise....... excellent!

TINA YOU DID A GREAT JOB! I AM SURE THE FD MEMBERS DIDN'T MIND THAT THEY HAD TO EAT THE PRACTICE CAKE AT ALL. IF THEY ARE ANYTHING LIKE THE MEMBERS IN MY FD THEN THEY WANTED TO KNOW WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE COMING!

Thanks everyone!! That cake almost made me stop decorating!!! It was a lot of work!!! Tasted great!! That's why I use the Sour Cream yellow cake recipe from the Cake Mix Dr.'s book for all my yellow cake orders.. It is delicious!! I have finally perfected it & get rave reviews!! It's yummy!!

The ladders were a last minute thing. I thought it needed more decoration. I was going to put the yellow caution tape (we have at the FD) all around the tiers but I couldn't find any un-used tape at the FD. All of the tape I found was dirty! Didn't want that touching the cake, ha ha!!

The border wasn't the FD red I wanted. I ran out of red coloring!! I had to use what I had. For my 1st stacked cake I think I did pretty good! I learned a lot from this practice cake!!

The only thing I do different know when I stack cakes is NOT use my daughter Mandy to cut the dowels for me!! She didn't have them even. Oh, well she's still my assistant w/ everything else!!

Thanks for the compliments everyone!
