This is the first BIG wedding cake i've done. it is all buttercream icing, the pillars are SPS (love them) and the flowers are silk. layers are 16, 14, 12 & 10". I also did an 8" that matches for them to freeze for their anniversay.

A really great job! I especially like the unique way the pillars are set offset from each other. It somehow adds some dimension to the look! I luv it!

thank you so much. i felt great about it but it sure is nice hearing that others like it too. i can't wait to hear what the bride thought...

indydeb... i did the pillars off like that because i didn't want it so symmetrical... do you think it looked weird? should i have put them straight?

I love the scroll work!! Did you freehand or did you use a template/stencil? It is absolutely beautiful! Great things are in store for you! thumbs_up.gif

I think if you had not had the space filled full with flowers, it could have looked "odd". But, no, I really like the look. It adds a little pizazz .... a different look. Not "run of the mill".

You know me ... I call 'em as I see 'em and if I didn't think it looked good, I wouldn't have said so! thumbs_up.gif
