thank you cakegal, you're very indulgent :D I used the wilton buttercream recipe but it came out so stiff it was a pain to ice the cake, but since it was my first cake I didn't dare to add anything to the buttercream to bring it to a better consistency :p

Great cake! I'm sure she felt like a princess! a little hint about WIlton's recipe is that the recipe makes *stiff* icing. To get thin icing, you add 2 tsp. water per cup of icing (one recipe makes about 3 cups icing).

This cake looks great! If this is your first cake you will be showing a lot of up very soon! What did you use for the door and windows and how did you cut them to that shape?

Wow, thank you so much everyone for being so supportive! :) Thank you for your tip on how to thin the icing, thecakemaven, I'll do that next time I use that recipe. The cones are sitting on strawberry tartlets, I filled them with chocolate mousse so that they would be steady (and it's very yummy too). I used soft thin waffle that I cut for the windows and door. And the flags are made with sugar coated strawberry flavored candies (I live in france, I don't know if you have the same kind in the us?).
