My son was getting married and asked me to do his cake! I have played for about a year and only decorate my kids cakes for their birthday! So this was very trying.

I wanted to thank everyone on here, because I browsed and read and watched videos, to learn how to do everything. And I would like to give special thanks to Serious_Cakes, for the video on smoothing bc!

I know it isn't perfect but I really never thought it would turn out like it did.
They were happy which in turn made me happy!

You did a great job. Be proud. Is that a groom's cake beside it? Look forward to more of your cakes.

Yes, it is a grooms cake. I did it also, triple chocolate cake with chocolate bc and chocolate strawberries

Bravo! What a wonderful job! My first wedding cake would have LOVED to have been that nice!
(It had TukNRuffle, grecian pillars, and cornelli lace hearts. *shiver*)
Best wishes to your son and his bride!
