I have made a cake here and there but this is the first real wedding cake I have done. For a person at work who snuck off and got married while on vacation. I was inspired by some really gorgeous cakes here on CC so I can't single out one person who influenced this one the most. WASC with fresh strawberry filling and buttercream. Two tier, although my skills at stacking are shabby so this thing was a bit unstable. I made the roses one night and froze them to plop on the cake later in the week. I learned to do the roses by reading a Wilton article and looking at the step by step instructions, my first few were embarrassing and most all of them are lopsided. People at the office didn't notice.
