Yellow Roses

 Yellow Roses  on Cake Central

This was my first wedding cake. I'm an amateur decorator and had never taken a class or had any instruction--I just learned from books and the internet. I've done two wedding cakes since, but this one's still my favorite. Covered in fondant with royal icing detail and gum paste flowers.

That is so pretty - especially since its your first cake. I am working on my first wedding cake right now.

I put the ribbon on after stacking the cakes at the location. I just secured the ends with a dab of royal icing.

Thank you! I used 14-10-6, 2" deep pans--double layers. So each tier is about 4 inches tall. I made all the gumpaste roses on the top on toothpicks. I used Wilton Buttercup Yellow paste color for the roses and the fondant.

Ahhh, Holly I have to agree with you it is a stunning cake and I can see why it is your favorite. Great job! Hope my first turns out half as good as yours.

May I know how do you secure the styrofoam cone to the cake? If it is just laid on top, wouldn't it fall off due to movement, wind, etc..?

mydelights--I just placed the styrofoam on top. The reception was indoors, so no wind. I didn't wrap it in fondant (thought that would work!), but to hide the spaces between the roses, I loosely wrapped tulle around it before sticking the roses in (the roses were on toothpicks)
