Hi

This posting is a bit late. I was out of station. This is the picture of my first wedding cake. Its far, far from some of the stunning creations I see here..I wonder how you get such straight contours and picture perfect edges..not to mention the smooth finish some of those cakes have..it leaves me sighing.

Neways, thanks for all the support, got so many helpful hints frm the forum on how to secure the cake, so many pitfalls were avoided thus.

P.S The theme of the wedding was Rustic, boy, my cake was rustic all the way smile

I think your cake is lovely Sharon.  If rustic was the theme of the wedding than it fit right in.  Don’t worry about getting smooth finishes on your cake, all it takes is practice, practice, practice.  I’m sure you will be making more wedding cakes.  I am making my first wedding cake in September and I am already stressed out. LOL

So what cake did you bake and what icing did you use?

Looks good to me, Sharon, and I bet it was delicious!  Which cake and frosting did you use?

Congratulations!!!  Yes, do tell what cake and filling/frosting you used!  Any especially fun compliments from happy eaters to share?

The fact that you managed to bake these three huge cakes, get them successfully centered, frosted, stacked, and ribboned….you should be very proud!!  If the bride and groom wanted a rustic wedding, they weren’t necessarily looking for one of those picture perfect, flawless finish cakes.  Was it for the wedding of a friend, relative, or customer?  Congratulations on your first wedding cake!

Hi

The cake was for a friend, Loopy.

The top tier was Rose’s Buttermilk Country Cake, (Pg 41, TCB) The bottom two layers were Chocolate Butter cake, Joy of baking recipe. The frosting was Swiss Meringue Buttercream, which I thought was the closest to what the bride wanted..Marshmellow frosting, which may not have stayed on the cake in our humid weather here in Kerala.

Yep, guess, ‘ll just continue to practice. Thanks for all the nice words..and all the best Liz, for your first September wedding cake..love to see it come together.

I agree…great job!  Everyone starts somewhere and I think it looks terrific!  I’ve never made a stacked wedding cake with multiple tiers…so I’m impressed.
