Design was based on a picture & tweaked from there. I wish I knew the name of the original designer... 6", 8" (3 layers), 10" with gumpaste flowers & real lace, ribbon & beads. There ws a slight lean to the cake because the mother of the groom baked the middle tier as part of a family tradition. It smelled divine but, um, some cakes are not... Well, let's just say all cakes are not created equal. LOL! TFL!
