This was my first attempt at making royal icing and doing free-hand piping. The brides only request was that the cake be created without the use of stencils, frosting sheets or image paper. I was happy to accommodate her, except on the top of the top tier. My hand was shaking so much that the use of an image helped considerably. A HUGE "thank you" to all the amazingly talented henna and cake artist's for their inspiration!
