Hi , now if your not that experienced in cake making , and I am not sure what you have in mind but how about making a few round layer cakes, iced in a buttercream frosting and just simply decorated by placing fresh flowers on top of the cakes. You could place the cakes on different height stands on a table. Very elegant and easy. no stacking of cakes and very easy to set up. you will have enough to do preparing for your wedding. These cakes can be made a few days in advance also. Hope this helps !

You have alot of time to practice. Weddings are usually very hectic the last week or so beforehand. If it was me, I would make them ahead and freeze, then just thaw and decorate as cakelady suggested. I just went through the wedding with my own daughter, and so much comes up at the last minute. Not trying to scare you, but this should be a time ful of memories for you, so do as much ahead as you can. JMHO and congratulations on the upcoming nuptuals.

I made my own wedding cake (its the one with the pink tulips in my photos) and would definitely recommend doing as much in advance as you can - the last few days before the big day are hectic enough! Fruit cake is definitely the least stressful cake to make as you can make and ice it weeks in advance - did you say no fruit cake because you don't like it or because you think it's hard to make? Otherwise chocolate mud lasts well and can be frozen, cover with ganache as it lasts longer than buttercream (the other wedding cake in my photos is covered with ganache so you can see the look of it)
Also if you have time have a practice run - so you can iron out any problems in advance and make sure it tastes good - the taste is the thing people will remember!
Good luck!

thanks to all and im so happy that i have found this forum icon_biggrin.gif

@Bunsen, yes i said no fruit cake because i dont like the taste, but i think i will make one for the guests and two other ones like sponge or chocolate

and i know that it will be stressful, but as you all said, i got a bit time to become practice
