This is my interpretation of a Cinderella themed wedding cake. On the top tier is a RI or Gumpaste Crown wrapped around the cake. The Carriage on the bottom tier will also be either RI or Gumpaste. There will be some cream colored pumpkins around the bottom of the carriage and with some rose clusters on the second tier.

I have also attached a picture of the cake the bride sent me.

Please be honest and tell me what you think.


edited: The cake colors are ivory, wine, and champagne white.

I honestly think it's a good interpretation of the cake in the picture, I am missing the flowers, but you said you will use some, so it will be fine, very fairy tale wedding cake!

Thanks guys! Yes, there will be some wine colored roses (to match the bouquet) and with the roses will be Champagne colored pumpkins with some green vines.

I really excited about this, now let's hope everything goes as planned.

Honestly, I like yours better! The other is a little too ostentatious for my taste, yours captures the most important elements without going overboard icon_wink.gif!

Are they interested in keeping the shape of the cake? The photo provided it such a tall cake with bigger differences in size as you go up. Yours is a beautiful tiered cake but leaves out the height and changes in tier size. It's a goregous and original design.

She wants 120 servings. So that's a 12,10,8, and 6. I haven't gotten all the details yet, I'm doing this on short notice because the original baker passed away suddenly and the wedding is June 27th. Right now I'm just giving some of my ideas based on what I've been told so far. I've been talking with the Maid of Honor (who is paying for the cake) and not the bride directly. They are supposed to confirm by Friday with details and send the down payment by next Wednesday. I won't start anything until I have the down payment so I can order some of the pans and colors I don't already have.

Can you use cake drums to give each layer a little more height without the extra cake? The cake are will be covered in fondant.

More height...yes! Use 1/2 inch foam core cut to shape and covered in press and sel...that's what I do!

thanks Jamie, I think that's what I'll do. I should still be able to use the SPS, right?
