so i was chief bridesmaid at the wedding of my kinda sister last weekend.  We had a fabulous time, however i should have guessed that a not very organised person would be not very organised before her wedding (particularly when given 6 weeks to prepare said wedding!)...

Hence when i arrived the night before the wedding (having been told all was ready), i was asked to decorate the cake (I can cook pretty well but never bake and have never decorated a cake!!!)  Below are the results - I was pretty pleased.

The roses were the main part - constructed following a search for instructions on the fimo pages!  the figures are family heirlooms and the cakes themselves were just plain shop bought.

This post is mainly a big THANK YOU to craftster for (as usual) coming up trumps.  So THANK YOU CRAFTSTERS EVERYWHERE for sharing the knowledge and making sure her cake came out beautifully!  Grin

The one downside was we established i'm not very good at floristry - however thankfully the usher was!!  Tongue

Looks great! Did you make the roses yourself to? And if you did, how?

I would never have guessed you hadn't decorated a cake before.  I think it's very elegant. Smiley

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

That's so impressive for your first cake, bravo!

WOW!  That's great, even if you *did* have previous experience!  But knowing that you'd never done that before just plain impresses the hell out of me.  Nicely done!

yes, all the roses were hand made - i was handed a box of royal icing which i made up then crafted.  Basically you make 7 very small pieces shaped like guitar picks, each slightly thinner at the top, getting slightly bigger each time.  Roll the first piece round so it folds in on itself (this is the bud), then add a 'petal' each side until you reach the desired size of rose - dead easy actually!

As i say, there is far better instructions on the fimo pages - but i was pleasantly surprised at how easy they were - if a little time consuming!
