Wow that's, colorful. I like the tiers indiv, but together, something's just not hitting me right. Very skilled work, still!

It gives me a headache to think about how many hours of piping that must've been...... icon_eek.gif

Yeah, not sure I'd want it at my own wedding but the work involved amazes me.

Pretty! It looks Indian to me. Switching piping bags would wear me out!! Not to mention mixing the colors. Am I just lazy?? LOL

LOl Carolann, I was thinking the same thing about mixing all those colors. That's one of those somebody would pay out the ying yang for. My hands cramp thinking about it. Do you know who did it?

Anyone else noticing how smooth the sides are? If it was hand piped wouldn't there be a raised edge? Looks like those printed chocolate backed sheets you and buy and apply to me. Just too smooth. However they achieved the effect, it's gorgeous!

yeah, i have to wonder if they just painted the fondant. the bottom tier on the right bottom corner with the yellow and orange archy things make me think they did. wow. time consuming.

Go to the menu on the left and look under cake gallery, I think. It is called Abstract Wedding Cake.
