I don't normally start a thread for my cake, but I was just so happy with it, I thought I should.
I took the cake shape idea from one of collettes cakes: http://www.weddingbook.com/vendors/colettes_cakes/profiles/wedding_cake/photos/126446.jpg
I bought the Nicholas Lodge Gumpaste gardenia and peony dvd, watched it 2 times and then made gardenias for the first time! Had some gumpaste roses, made the leaves.
I attended the wedding as well, so I was able to stand near the cake and hear people talking about it. And then sometimes talk to them about it. I felt like a proud mom Thanks for looking.
Great job...I just looked at the pic. And a nice story too! I want to do the same thing every time I make a cake. Sometimes it's just "bride ordered from e-mail, I made cake, delivered cake, end of story." How boring! Lol.....again, great job, it is soooo pretty! And awesome fondant work as well!
One word ---- stunning - you have every reason to be proud.
Your cake is gorgeous. Aren't Nick's DVD's great? I was lucky enough to take his Exotic & Tropical Flowers in Austin last month. Now I'm trying to save enough money for a week in Atlanta.
That cake is amazing,congrats.
You are so gifted. It's beautiful and I am so glad you told us about it!!
Beautiful cake. I love the shape of the tiers.
Like I said on your pic comment, you nailed it! It is sooooo pretty. I love when people post their pics on the forum because sometimes I dont get to the galleries to look.
The cake is beautiful! Your brush embroidery work just makes it so elegant! Congrats!
