I am embarking on my first wedding cake/grooms cake journey, as we speak. I am very organized, I am not stressing (does it sound like I am trying to convince myself of that?), I seem to have everyhting I need, and am ready to go. icon_smile.gif

Going to be cooling and freezing, and baking and decorating my little heart out for the next four days. party.gif

I have been readin CC a lot lately, printing out threads that I need. So thank you to all for sharing thoughts, ideas, experience, and lessons.

I am treating each and every tier as its own cake and using the SPS system to stack. I learned it all from ya'll. Super excited and just wanted to share. icon_razz.gif

I am not legal, so don't go there because I am not charging, already verified with vendor that this was okay. These cakes are for my dear friends as a gift. I love CC. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks for all of your kind words.

The snare drums are each resting on small plastic disks the are screwed onto the dowel. My hubby found these disks in the electrical section of Lowes. I think they are used to cover unused electrical boxes or the mount something on. Not too sure .

Yay!! Thanks guys. At one point I wanted to pick it all up and throw it against the wall and quit. Glad I didn't. Now I have finished my first wedding cake and can breath again. But I am not in a huge hurry to do another one any time soon. icon_smile.gif

Those are some really great looking cakes. I love the floor for the drums. So, cool! And, the incorporation of black with your flowers sprays is great. I have an issue with using more than 2 colors...call me a wierdo. But, even the way I dress...very classic I guess. Almost always black and a color. So, the combination of several colors is always so great to me.

Very good job! Hey, by the way, what is SPS stacking system mean? I'm just learning and your stacking looks great.

Thanks & Congrats again!!!
