So it's my first time making a wedding cake and I'm not sure what I'm doing. I would really appreciate if I could have some questions answered. It's going to be a 3 tier cake with a gazebo between the middle and top layer. Can anyone give me suggestions as to how I should stack the cake? What do I use to stack it and keep it in place? Do I use buttercream or royal icing to pipe out the decoration on the fondant? Any suggestions for transporting the cake? How do I ensure the lace ribbon stays on? I'm sorry, I know it's a lot of questions but I'm really nervous and not sure what I'm entirely doing since this is my first wedding cake
Hello and welcome to CC!
Doing a wedding cake, contrary to what a lot of people think, is actually quite hard to do, and It sounds like you have taken on quite a cake for not having any idea what you are doing!
Someone's wedding is one horrible time to attempt to make something you've never done before, if I were you I'd find someone else to do it that has experience. If not, I hope you have given yourself LOTS of time to practice practice practice!
There are countless threads here that have step by step instructions on how to stack a cake, you should also check You tube, countless videos are posted.
I would suggest watching all "tonedna1" videos on YouTube. She shows how to stack cakes, icing cakes, etc. That's how I got started.
