hi all - just wanted to share my first wedding cake with you...I was so nervous in the run up to this, delivered on Good Friday, I was wondering what I'd got myself into and if I was really capable of doing it, but thankfully nothing went wrong! Drove an hour down the M25 with the bottom 12" tier in a box and strapped into the passenger seat next to me! I had pre-stacked the top two tiers and they sat in the footwell. I drove sooooo slowly! Lol...then took me 2 hours to set up, but I was really happy with how it turned out in the end. In the end, I ended making my own stand by using a 16" round dummy wrapped in ribbon and lace.

When I walked into my kitchen the next day I felt like I'd lost my baby!! hahaha

Hi everyone, just to let you know the BSG message board is working now. But if you have saved the old link, it won't work. So you need to go to the main page of the BSG guild and then to the message board. icon_biggrin.gif

Hi all

Is anyone going to cake international next weekend? Or entering one of the competitions?

I'm going to the Alan Dunn orchid dem on Friday and have entered the shoes and handbag class, wish there was a novice class tho!

I have favourited it as I would like to copy that idea in the bear future if you don't mind.
Did you start with a round or square cake?

Thanks

It's 2 round 8" fruit cakes (in fact they are mary berry christmas cake mixes brought for £1!!)
They are quite shallow cakes tho.
Chopped bottom off to make flat edge then gradually made the shape.

Hi ladies, need help in pricing up 100 chocolate cupcakes plus the top cake that is a victoria sandwich 8" iced with butterflies. Never done a cupcake wedding cake before so any advice would be great.
Thanks
