This was my first wedding cake. It's all buttercream. I was afraid to do stacked construction, so I bought Wilton's Crystal Clear Divider Set. I love the spaces between the tiers. It had a "place of honor" at the reception hall near the entrance where everybody saw it. I also attended the wedding as a guest. To my pleasant surprise, the bride or bride's parents had the DJ announce my name and what table I was sitting at and had me stand up!
