ok so it looks simple, that was the problem no where to hide the little errors and being from uk it is all fruit and marzipan so it weighs a ton the bride is adamant that she is picking it up stacked not my problem ive rang her on many occasions telling her the problems but she insists, still its done picture does it no justice it is the hearts and sparkle wedding cake, ive never been so pleased to finish a cake in my life, i had nightmares over it. now i just hope the bride will be happy with it, ive sent her pic in an e mail and she said she loved it but i hope she still feels the same when she picks it up, my problem is ive no confidence in my own work, but as my hubby says it is her design and her wedding is he right, do you lot think its ok or could i do better

I think it's absolutely beautiful! When does the bride pick it up?

Absolutely beautiful! I wouldn't have done anything differently.

A word of advice though, on emailing pics of a finished cake in advance. In my experience you are just inviting responses like, "oh, I thought the hearts would be darker. Can you make them darker?" or "I'm not sure on the ribbon. Can you try it without and send me another pic?" People don't understand why a "tiny little change" on a completed cake can be an enormous task.

artscallion: great advice about not e-mailing a picture. I never would've thought of that! You are so right, someone would definately want changes made without realizing what's involved. I'm going to be more careful not to post pictures until after the cake is gone.
