So my sister is getting married on Saturday and I'm doing the cake. icon_eek.gif
I never really told her that I wanted to because I'm very new at this. Plus I'm the maid of honor. I don't want to ruin her wedding by it tasting or looking bad. She has faith in me and I know she will love it no matter what. icon_smile.gif However, I'm a little scared icon_cry.gif

Just needed to vent.

Congrats on your sister's wedding. I'm sure you can do this. Do you know what she wants you to make?

Yes she wants a 4 tiered square buttercream cake. I'm not so great with buttercream. That's what's kind of making me nervous. And I've never stacked a cake that big.

You're very brave. Square cakes scare me to death!

You might want to check out the tutorial on icing square cakes in the articles section. I have a square cake coming up and I just found this article. I think I saw a video on youtube about it too. You may already know how to do this, I just thought I would pass this info on.

First thing first-get an SPS system. You can purchase it at Global Sugar Art. Especially if you have never done such a large cake-you really need it to be sturdy.

That would be my most top suggestion before anything else!
