And it came out better than I thought it would! My brother and his finacee wanted me to do their wedding cake, so I agreed. I started two weeks in advance making roses out of modeling chocolate, since I'd never done that before. Give some extra time just in case it didn't work! I didn't want to do gumpaste, since those aren't really for eating... Heh. Check it out here!

Anyway, I just wanted to post it here since this is my first wedding cake, and the biggest cake I've ever done! I'M SO HAPPY I'M DONE! *sigh of relief* Thanks to tutugirl, tonedna and several other people who gave me advice and inspiration to get this done!

Do you make modeling chocolate rose just like you do gumpaste roses?

It's similar to gumpaste, but the petals will melt if you handle them too much. I had to work fast!

Yup, this is the offset cake! I didn't use SPS, but after cutting all those dang dowels, I think I might make the investment for the next one... icon_eek.gif I set it up onsite before the wedding, and not a tilt in sight! Had to do some architectural planning, but the end result was worth it! icon_biggrin.gif
