WOW! Welcome! If you go to the recipe link there are many mnay BC recipes there. Everyone seems to have their own favorite. A ny cake can be made for a wedding cake, it depends on what the bride and groom are looking for. The WASC recipe seems to be a favorite . You can also find it on the recipe link. I always use boxed cake mix w/an extra egg added. Always works for me. Cake decorating is addictive, I started in August, and cant keep up with the orders. You can look at me cakes if you llike . Some are better than others. some only took a day. a few had about 18-20 hours of time to them. Good Luck!!!!!!! icon_smile.gif

Wow! That was an exhausting post to read! icon_eek.gif Now, take a deep breath, and I will talk you down icon_cool.gif . So, one question I think I read was about buttercream. A really good icing is SMBC (swiss meringue buttercream). It is light and delicious. There are many good recipes on CC. Good Luck and welcome to CC. icon_biggrin.gif

HI Whittyella! Welcome to our little corner of the decorating world. You will learn lots here when you can take time to read the many, many posts. There is sooooooo much information it will make your eyes cross & tieredicon_smile.gif
But please, your posts are *VERY!* difficult to readicon_sad.gif Please use periods, commas etc to separate your thought so us 'old ladies' can understand them.
