If I were closer I'd come and give you a right hand. Hopefully, someone can come up with a solution for you.

I wish I were closer too! I'm in South Jersey/Philly, so unless you're in the tippy top of MD, it's a little far...

I'm even left handed!

yea...maybe you can post another thread looking for a cake decorator in your area? OR you could simply find a bakery that you know is good and pass her off to them...I mean, if you really think you aren't going to be able to do it. Do you have someone in the area that can help you out? and how detailed is the wedding cake?

wow...I posted too many questions

Well I talked my ortho into taking my cast off Friday. My appt is at 9am. I have a friend who is willing to help(she's a beginner), so I'm hoping since it's kinda plain and covered in fondant it will go ok..... She said since i'm encapacitated(he!he!) if i need to make some modifications she wouldnt mind. She said she really likes my cake flavors. So, I'm gonna use dummy cakes and kitchen cakes for the back. This should allow me for a little more "play" Thanks for all the offers to help! I was really freaking out!!
