Ok so my friends is doing a real small wedding and she is on a very low budget so I want to help her out and do a wedding cake for her.

Can anyone give me some helpful tips.

I am going to attempt to do a 3 or 4 tier cake. She requested red velvet with creamcheese frosting but I have never made either of the two. I always make boxed cakes and made my own buttercream frosting but I want to make her happy.

I just need ideas on storing? Transporting? maybe a good recipe?
Anything, I am nervous cause its my first time making a wedding cake and I dont want to screw this up for her.

I appreciate any feedback..thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

If you want to use box mix, use the WASC recipe with the red velvet box mix. For cream cheese, try the recipe from crusting one.

As for transporting, you would need a reliable support system or assemble at the reception.

If you have any more questions, try using this:

Good luck.
