ok, so this is an odd request. i've been asked to do a cake for my ex-fiance whos getting married in october. i am still good friends with his family and sisters, but haven't talked to him in almost 7 yrs. my husband is ok with me making the cake, so i asked how many people, design, flavors etc before i jump in. i was told it was going to be in a backyard, so expected about 50-75 people. oh no....150 people! AGH. now, i bake prosfessionally at a hotel so, i do wedding cakes for work all the time. but baking at home is a whole different ballgame. i dont have any of my tools at home, or pans etc.

so for the design they want a princess and the frog theme. the are thinking purple and hunter green. they have a topper, but are cool with any other ideas that i have. this cake lands right in the middle of a VERY busy wedding season at work. so now that i know how big of a cake i'm looking at, i'm a little hesitant to do the cake.

so looking for some fun, simple ideas to make this cake special for a wedding, but not kiddy and cheesy. Thanks for the help icon_surprised.gif)

thinking of doing 5 small cakes for the base, decorated like lillipads, then make a 3 tier cake ontop of that. bottom tier decorated with grass and cattails, then second tier green base with purple swirls, and not sure about top tier. i dont know what the topper looks like. any ideas???????

Some water lillies would be nice for flowers, you could do one tier blue for the water, and some dragonflies floating above from wires.

I think a lily would be a great topper. I've got a princess and the frog cake in my photos that would be perfect for a wedding. Good luck!
