Great job. And now you know why there is a huge difference between making it yourself and paying someone else to do it. Would you have taken 2 days off work to do it for the cost of materials for anyone else? I obviously don't know how much you make, but losing 2 days pay is nothing to sneeze at. You would've have only paid me 1 days pay, plus overhead (about $20) materials (about $50) plus delivery.

AWell, I'm salary, so I didn't lose any money...

But I understand why professionals charge as much as they (always have), but $650 was the quote I got and that didn't include delivery. I know it would have looked much better than mine, but I really wanted to do this myself and everyone liked it as a personal touch and it was a great conversation starter :)

AYou did a terrific job on the cake! And you have some very special memories you wouldn't have had if someone else made it. Congratulations to both of you and many blessings!

That was a really beautiful cake! I know it took a lot of time, as did the other things you did for the wedding, but I can see you enjoyed it all and that it made all the difference to your day. Congratulations on making your wedding day the one you and your husband wanted!
