I've seen many beautiful wedding dress cakes in the gallery. How is it done? I was just asked to make my first paid cake (other than family) and really want to do a good job. All I was told was that they want cake, no fruit filling and it needs to serve about 20 people, design is up to me. I would like to give this type of design a try...any tips or suggestions are very appreciated!

use that link. I used it to make mine. It's actually really easy. The hardest part I found was that my bride had the "rouching" in the front.... The pic of my cake is below.

There is another style where you use a heart shape pan to do the bodice of the bride in her dress. Fairly simple.

I think you haven't been specific enough! There are tons of different bridal dress cakes.

From the Barbie style one PP posted a link for, to the two tiered cake with the buttons and bow and 'skirt' for the bottom.

My favorite (that I hope to do some day) is this design

Someone even did a tiered version of this recently and it was incredibly lovely.

Bizatchgirl-- I am looking to make the one that you pictured, preferably with a round cake.

This is what I am hoping to make. (same link as Bizatchgirl)

Sorry, mamanof3, I haven't done that cake yet. Hopefully someone else can chime in. If not, PM the person who made it and ask for some tips!
