I want to start out by saying a giant THANKS to everyone here for your help in creating my first wedding cake!5642b3761f0ac.jpeg

I have been a "lurker" here on CC for many months, happily taking in all the wonderful posts you've added and gleaning worlds of knowledge in the wonderful art of cake decorating.  I am only a hobby baker for friends and family, but I love doing this!   I've been too shy to take part in any convos because my caking skills are still, in my opinion, very unrefined, and I haven't felt as though I could really add anything to any of your brilliant posts.  It's because of your knowledge and advice given to others that I felt brave (is that the word??) enough to tackle the challenge of a four-tier wedding cake for some dear friends.  It was quite a mountain to climb, so to speak, but the bride and groom were thrilled with it as were the wedding guests.  I still have a lot to learn, and a long way to go in cake decorating, but this first step has been conquered and happily gobbled up!  The 12" bottom tier was carrot cake, then a 10" lemon, then a 8" blueberry cake, and the 6" top tier was vanilla with raspberry filling, all covered up with SMBC.  Thanks again, friends!

Congratulations MamiesCupcakery. Your cake looks like a lot of love and care has gone into it, no wonder your friends were thrilled.

You have gone from a lurker  to a poster with a bang!

I'm not sure if you still want any advice and this is not meant to upset you AT ALL, but next time think about putting your cake on a professional cake board it makes all the difference in the world to your presentation :-)

Thanks so much for the kind comments!!  I am definitely open to constructive criticism, especially from bakers who have been doing this for awhile.  

810whitechoc, I would never dream of being upset with you!  The cake board was actually something I totally forgot about until the last moment, and I had to slap something together quickly.  I live in a small town with just no place to buy cake supplies so it's tough if I don't order ahead. :/

k8memphis, yes, that's a burlap ruffled table cloth.  All the girls getting married nowadays love the burlap look!!

Good for you and an extra A+ for accepting whichoc's comment with grace. I saw it too (missing cake board), probably because the rest of the table is sooooo perfect. Congrats to you! I do "mystery shopping" in my somewhat "real" life, so I tend to see details.  That table is so trendy, fresh and awesome!!!!
