My husband and I took classes at Michael's and learned how to decorate cakes and make sugar flowers. After several months of these lessons (and a couple private lessons), Dave made the cakes and most of the flowers and I designed and placed them.
Here are a bunch of pics:
This is our main cake. The bottom layer was strawberry shortcake, the middle layer was italian cream cake, and the top layer is just vanilla (for next year).
Here's another pic of the same cake:
We also made a grooms cake (marchino cherry and chocolate with chocolate covered cherries to decorate) which you can see here:
We are still getting compliments on the cakes. Mostly how delicious they were; I have to say, I married a great cook/baker.
