Yes, the mother of the bride decided to use a stand with 7 shelves, each holding a cake. I made 6 toppers covered with the fall colored gumpaste flowers they requested (roses, dahlias, carnations, and lily of the valley) plus red currants and leaves. The top topper was two "wedding owls", as per the invitation. That one I made out of Rice Krispie treats covered with fondant.
Live and learn moment: this was my first wedding cake. I have known the parents for decades (the father is the director of the building where I work) and the mother does wedding cakes regularly. Her daughter asked her to make the wedding dress AND wedding cake so needless to say, the mother ran out of time! She still went ahead and baked the cakes, filled and coated them, and had them stored in the freezer at the venue. What I expected was to have 7 properly prepped cakes but what I got were soaking wet cakes that looked like a 5 year old threw on some buttercream! They were totally unlevel and, well, a total mess. She had left me a bag of icing but that too had been frozen and I didn't have the equipment to rewhip it to properly recoat the cakes. If I had been warned, I would have brought in a big batch of buttercream from home and my leveler to have nice even cakes.
So, I spent 2 hours (until the bridal party showed up) trying my best to fix a complete mess. The toppers covered the top and the fall leaves I had made did the border (she didn't even pipe a border, which I had expected!) Still, so frustrating to spend that much time making 96 gumpaste flowers, 144 red berries plus a wack load of leaves only to be faced with a mess to place them on! Lesson learned....never trust someone else (even though they are experienced wedding cake makers and this was for their only daughter) to do an adequate job!
