Default Cake Watch, 2005

Okay Britta, not sure if it's my turn or not, but here I go anyway!

Here is the wedding cake that I just finished today! What's funny is it turns out that the groom is the brother of one of my friends! But I didn't know what the last name was, so it was a nice surprise to see my friend there.

The bows gave me the most trouble, but I think they turned out pretty good. The flowers for the cake were HUGE so we had to be creative. We only used flower petals on the heart cakes because the flowers were too big.

The flowers on the bottom cake, swag, and bows are made out of fondant.

Glad it's over!

Beautiful cakes! Any bride would love to have these at her wedding! As someone that does a 'character' cake for each of her two boys each year for their birthdays, I know and appreciate how much work would go into a wedding cake. BEAUTIFUL!

beautiful cake! I have sort of taught myself how to do cake decorating, I haven't ventured out into wedding cakes and only do cakes for family and close friends, but it would be something I would be interested in. Especially if I can get them to look like that!!! it's beautiful!! here's a cake for a baby shower that I did. I was very proud of the way it turned out! everyone loved it!

If you want to do wedding cakes, I highly recommend taking all three Wilton Cake Decorating courses.

I was self taught until I took the courses and learned the techniques they teach. It greatly improved my cake decorating, and it's not like my cakes stunk before, either.

Wow! Great cake! I used to teach the Wilton classes and do cakes, but now I'm too busy with college so I don't do very many any more. Sometimes I wish I had bought a shop and done them for a living, but I think I'd be there way too many hours!

I love the title of your thread! Do you do a lot of cakes? Will you be posting pics of them? I used to belong to a cake decorating message board, but I let that slide too!
