My fiancé and I have decided to make our own wedding cake and I have a few questions! We do make cakes on the side, but we have only done kids cakes, shaped/ theme cakes. Wedding cakes seem more intimidating to me, not sure why!
There will be approx 65 people, so we were thinking 6,8,10 for the tiers. Does this sound about right? It will be our main dessert so I want to make sure there is enough.
Also, I wanted to find a cake stand to display it on, possibly one of the vintage pedestal ones. Will they hold a cake that large? I've never used them before and I am not sure how sturdy they are.
Last question! We want to use real flowers that we are getting from our florist... I've never worked with real flowers before, how should they be attached? ( there will be flowers on the top and a few on the sides).
I would appreciate any advice!! We are going to do a practice cake, I've just never done a wedding cake before and want to make sure I don't screw it up!
