Ugh, I spent forever on this cake for my sister-in-law's wedding. It turned out great and I was all excited until I delivered the cake. It was a 12, 10, 8, 6 covered in fondant.

They had me place it on the 2nd of 3 long rectangular tables...with no wheels...against the wall between the appetizers and the gifts. They thought they were going to take the cake tot he kitchen to cut it until they saw me deliver it!!!! I kindly suggested they invest in a smaller table with wheels for the next event. Apparently they have only done about 3 weddings. Ugh!!! Just so disappointed. Some noiticed, but I felt the cake "got lost" among the surroundings.

For those who didn't notice it at the venue, it was their loss. The cake is beautiful! I'm sure your sister-in-law must have been thrilled with such a lovely cake.

On the bright side, the cake was close to the bar icon_lol.gif I think I was most bummed that I didn't get the pretty background for pictures I was hoping for. The wood paneling doesn't really give an elegant effect. My DH was so cute...he suggested bringing back our own table and removed a chair cover in attempt to create a better background!
