My Son's Wedding Cake

This design is from Spectacular Cakes by Mich Turner. It is 6,10,14,18 inc all covered in fondant with royal icing fleur-de-lis. I have never done one this large and learned tons. It is far from perfect but given I had a few other things to do that week, I am pleased with how it turned out. I do think they are the last family members I will make a cake for, especially when I have so much to do for the wedding!!

Thanks so much ladies. Yes I did do the detail work according to the book, pin pricks with the pattern. Once I got going it wasn't too bad. The picture is at the reception by the wedding photographers. I will post a picture of the whole table. It was DIL's idea she got from a mag.

Also, how did you transfer the design? I know in the book she does the pin prick. Seemed challenging and time consuming!
