I'm so excited. I've just made my very first wedding cake and i'm so relieved!!!
It's not a paid order I made it for friends who are getting married this weekend, but i made the flowers by hand and wired them together and managed to get the white fondant pretty smooth.
Was terrified because the bride wanted something really clean and simple, which meant i had hardly anything to hide behind!
Anyway just sharing here because you guys will get my excitement! It means i can actually start thinking about a website as i have at least one wedding cake to display!
Thanks for reading!
Funny how it can make you so nervous, and yet so excited, too! I know exactly what you mean. Looks like you did a lovely job on the cake--the flowers are so pretty, and looks like your fondant is perfectly smooth to me. Great work, and congrats on your first wedding cake!
It's stunning! Absolutely perfect!
Great job! congrats on the first one
GOOD JOB!!! it is beautiful!
Your flowers are really nice. Great job.
Gorgeous cake. I love the flowers. Can I ask how you do them. I'd like to make some for a cake I'm doing and wondered about the black stamen and what cutters to use.
you did a great job! Congrats!
Your cake caught my eye on the home page today. Great work!
Thanks everyone. Cocobongo, I made the flowers using my largest rose petal. each petal was frilled and individually wired. The black centres are covered in sugartex and i poked it black stamen all the way around. Each one took about 25 minutes - i've got to get faster!!!
It looks great! And as for time, I seem to remember watching an episode of Cake Boss where they made anemones and Buddy said it took a half hour to make each one, so I think 25 minutes sounds pretty good! But definitely time consuming! You did a great job!
I think it looks gorgeous! Simple and elegant. Fantastic job!
Great job! You should be proud!
I love it! The flowers are beautiful, well done
Excellent! You will be doing a 2nd one soon and be getting paid too!!
I just completed my first one too, and I was at the wedding so it was added stress. I got to see first hand the reaction when people took a bite. Thankfully I only had good reviews. I'll still be just as nervous for my 2nd I'm sure.
Well done on yours, I need to give anemone's a try, they look great.
I think your cakes are wonderful and you certainly have enough of them to make a beautiful display on a website. It is clear to see that even though you only have one wedding cake that you have the talent to offer to do many more!!
It's beautiful, you did a great job.
very nice,, congratulations on you first wedding cake success : )
Very beautiful I will be delivering my first one tomorrow so I know how you feel about teh nervousness and the excitement too!!! I have probably went down stairs and looked at it 5 times LOL!!!!!!
How pretty! I bet the couple was thrilled!
Very pretty cake...well done! The cake is beautiful.
Beautiful beautiful cake--amazing work for a 'first'.
I'm glad cameras hadn't been invented when I did my first one.
Very nice work. I would have never guessed it was your first wedding cake.
Hey, what support system did you use to stack each tier?
My first wedding cake is a black and white that I gave as a gift to my husband's nephew and his bride. I was so pleased with the result, and also to the fact that now I have something to show to future clients.
Its worth the investiment.
Your cake is so clean and elegant, and the flowers so beautiful!! You will have tons of orders.... Congratulations.
wow!!! your first wedding cake??? you coulda fooled me! looks like an old pro! great great job and congrats!!!!
Thank you all so much! Even when you think you've done a pretty good job, it's still terrifying to show the client!
Wedding was yesterday and bride was delighted.
Actually used the sps system - ordered it on Ebay and had it shipped to the UK. But well worth it for peace of mind!
Thanks all for your support and encouragement. It really does mean alot!
