My FIRST 4 Tier Wedding Cake!

A cake of MANY, many firsts for me! My first 4 tier wedding cake, first ranunculus and peonies (attempted anyway – look more like carnations lol), first floral ball topper, first lustred tier, first all petal tier and first “fancy” wedding cake.

5", 7" double, 9" double, 12". I took inspiration for the double layered bow again from Sweet Picasso. The bottom petal tier was inspired by the many all ruffle, all petal, all scrunch tiered cakes I’ve seen here so thank you all – I just wanted to make it a little bit different so did two layer petals. The 3rd tier was inspired by the design of the backs of my dining chairs (shhh lol). The top gold tier was again inspired by so many lustred cakes I’ve seen.

With many firsts, came MANY, many headaches and issues which I won’t list as it would be a book’s worth. In the end, although not perfect I was happy with the results. The last pic is the wide shot which I like best but the details are fuzzy so I went with the first shot as the main one, which is clearer. TFL. =D

Whew!! That’s a lot of firsts and let me tell you, you did a great job! So much to love about this cake – the colors, and flowers and different tiers. Love the topper and bottom tiers as well. If I may ask, how’d you do the ball topper like that? Love it. And we do get inspiration for everywhere, don’t we?! Great cake.

Thanks Ana & Jan! Appreciate your awesome comments =D

The ball topper was done with a cereal treat ball centre that I covered with fondant and then I just applied the petals as I did on the bottom tier, and filled in the gaps with the filler roses so it looks more seamless.
