Ok so i have made cakes that look like wedding cakes but this is my first offical cake for a wedding. IT was for my cousins wedding so it was less stressful then others. Baking alone took 5-6 hours. The cake pretty much made it to the reception (in 20 minutes of traffic up and down hills), slightly stressful. The cake is vanilla marble vanilla. with vanilla chocolate vanilla buttercream. covered in satin ice. The swags are fondant and the flowers are buttercream as well as the border.
