I am so sorry about your cake! Please don't give up on making wedding cakes. I had a similar experience. I had the brides mother call me after the wedding wondering if I had a picture of the wedding cake when I set it up. When I asked her about it she started crying, saying it had started falling over and they had to take it apart. She was also upset because the ice sculptures that they ordered also never showed. I showed her the picture of the cake and told her everything was fine when I left. She finally let it out that the air conditioning in the banquet room must have gone out because it was really hot when they got there. I was so glad I had taken a picture to prove that I left everything in good shape. However, I know how you feel. I was so upset that I wanted to quit baking too. You never want your customers to be upset with you. But keep learning and keep at it. It was a beautiful cake, especially for your first one!
