My first wedding cake

First attempt at a wedding cake. read a tutorial on how to create the billows on the bottom tier a few weeks ago. Then I created the cake just this week and did it by memory. My memory was not as good as I thought. I cut the squares too small, if I had done them bigger – a lot bigger like in the tutorial, it would have been MUCH easier! But in the end it turned out to be a pretty fantastic finish!

Thanks everyone. I cant believe the response that I have gotten from this cake. I have to admit that the corners are so sharp because this cake was done on styrofoam. I have to say though that I would much prefer to work with cake, as it is more spongie and more forgiving. Styrofoam is very hard and has divots. It dries out the fondant very quickly, you have to work fast of it tares. The bride was so happy with it, and I just got the wonderful news that they are already pregnant and we will be doing plenty more cakes…… baby shower, birthdays and baptism!
