I would have cried too because it is simply gorgeous and you knew exactly how you wanted it to come out and it did!

I cried after I made my s-i-l's wedding cake because of that same reason! It was only my 3rd cake.

Don't worry about what you family thinks of you for crying - my family thinks I'm nuts anyway! lol

thank you all so much for your kind comments, It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who cries over cake.....LOL

Diane .....the pink/white flowers are made out of royal icing....the grapes and the tiny white flowers were made out of gum paste.
Thanks for asking!

I agree, the flowers are stunning and the cake is beautiful! I know after staying up late at night finishing a cake I am exhausted and could easily cry from relief!

Your cake is beautiful, I don't know how you held everything together. I LOVE the flowers & grapes. How did you bunch them together? Keep up the good work.

Thank you all again sooooo much for your kind words of encouragement!

Meloda I made all the grapes on their own wire and when they were dry I bound them together one at a time with floral tape into grape bunches....each flower was on its own wire....... I feel it's easier to place everything where you want it if everything is have more freedom that way, because you never know how everything will fit until you build the cake.

Thanks for asking!

Awesome job! That cake is stunning! The tiers are so straight and level, and so smooth! The flowers are gorgeous!

You should be very proud of yourself! I'm sure the bride was thrilled!
