7-1-06 Wedding Cake

This wedding was yesterday. It was champagne cake. The reception was at 6:00. I got to the reception hall at 2:30. Nobody around and the doors were all locked! It was 96 degrees here yesterday! I had visions of the cake melting in the trunk of my car! I called the number on the back door and was told no one was to be there until 3:30! He was kind enough to drive downtown and let me in. I'll never do a square cake again! Stupid corners! Bride & groom were happy, but I was not.

I hear you on that, corners can take for ever, yet this is lovely. we are so hard on ourselves and yet we try again, it says something about us Bakers. I guess we like the torture. Lol

For the stand, I used 4 glass blocks with a large piece of round tempered glass on top of them. Then I unwound a spool of tulling and entertwined it with white frosted lights. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments. When I agree to do a cake (months in advance), it's no big deal. Then the day of the reception I am a basket case and I ask myself why, why why did I ever agree to do this???

This is very nice and your corners look fine. I have a square pan but have yet to use the thing. Guess I'm working my way up to it. LOL, which translates into "chicken".

Don't worry I am the same way. Am I realy a cake decorator? I aways ask myself. I agree with those corners at one point I was going to ask in the forum do you charge more for square cakes becuase of the corners or is that unfair. But anyway your cake is great!

I love the stand what a clever and scarey idea. R u one of those that gets "a look" and then comes up with a fabulous idea??? I work with an event planner/desinger and it's scarey at times. I love the look
