Ok everyone here it is…. I was a nervous wreck while making this cake…. but when I finally finished it I could breath again….. It truned out pretty good although I am my own worst critic and I could see all the flaws…. But everyone else raved about it….. Made me feel really good to make my baby girl so happy!  The grooms cake turned out pretty good too, he was thrilled with it! Made me very proud!  It was hard for me to cut the logos out of fondant next time I might try a buttercream transfer like I saw on one of these forums….Hope you like it and any and all feed back is welcome!

FANTASTIC!!!!
I am about to make a Golden Wedding cake for my DIL"s parents, if I make half as good a job as you I’ll be thrilled with myself. (I know I won’t make that good a job!)

Thank you all for your complements they were thrilled with the cakes I had the manager of the country club ask me for my card and when I told him I didn’t have cards as I was not in the cake business he told me I needed to be and if I did get into it,  to give him a call and he would hand my cards out to people who come there to book the country club for events!  So I am really excited now I just have to figure out all the legal mumbo jumbo and what all it intails…. What the laws are here in Tennesse as well as in my county…...So wish me luck and Thank you again for all the complements….  red face
