I just wanted to thank SugarShack for her teaching dvds and the members of Cake Central for giving me the inspiration, confidence and ability to do my first wedding cake. (See cake in my photos)

I am fairly new to cake decorating. My main interest, in the past, has been deco cookies.

A couple of months ago I volunteered to make a co-workers wedding cake. When I offered. I thought it was going to be a tiny wedding and would be good experience while getting my toes in the water.

Well, after Iâm committed, I find out theyâve received back their RSVPs & they are planning on 300! OK!⦠(breath!), (donât panic), (what was I thinking when I said I do this?), (300 people are going to see me crash & burn), (i live in a small town - everyone will know), (I've never even done a stacked cake!)

The cake size I had planned was not going to cut it and did I mention that I also offered to make cupcakes and cookies? Everything now has more than tripled and Iâm freaking out!

But, thanks to you all here and Sharonâs dvd s (Fondant & the stacking one) I pulled it off. I watched those Dvds countless times and followed her methods closely. I came here to CC several times a day and received so much information & encouragement .

I am truly grateful for this forum.

Thank You All!

I agree - sugarshacks DVD are so valuable! Since I joined CC last year my cakes have improved so much thanks to all of the help I got from the forums.

You did a wonderful job on the wedding cake. I have been wondering about getting SugarShack's DVDs. I think now I will.

Your cake looks beautiful! Great job. I just ordered the dvd's the other day I can't wait to watch them. I hope they help me to make a cake as beautiful as yours.

Thank you for your wonderful comments! I also wanted to say that I used Rhonda's Ultimate Marshmallow Fondant recipe and I was very happy w/ the results. I've never used commercial fondant but want to next time so I can compare.

I used Earline's method to hand make the pearls from MMF. It went faster than I thought it would but I want to try the silicone molds next time. IF there is a next time.

This was an awesome learning experience and a lot of prayer went into every step!

Beautiful cake. I also agree. I have all three of Sharon's videos. I love them and refer to them often.

I have all three and I'm eagerly awaiting Jennifer Dontz's DVDs which are due out this month!! icon_lol.gif Thanks for the good word on the homemade MMF -- I haven't tried that recipe yet.
