A Future Promise Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't believe the reviews that say it's very difficult to make. If you know how to stack a cake then this will be easy. its clean line and very simple... you can opt out to do it without the pipping work and it still looks gorgeous and it will cut the difficulty significantly... its simple, clean line and beautiful! Suggestions from me would be... don't do the pipping work on it if its too difficult for you or just do it in Wilton's butter cream recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is just beautiful. I made it for a friend's wedding and she loved it. As I was setting it up I kept hearing people remark how unusual it was and that they had never seen a cake like that before. It is truly unique and went together fairly quickly. The fondant ribbons can be colored to match any wedding or party colors. It can also be made smaller, by omiting the bottom layer and wrapping the words around two sides of each layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How could this cake be anymore beautiful? It is very unique. I absolutely love the blue but it would look nice in many colors. The writing on the sides is so elegant, you just need a steady hand! I made this for my niece's wedding and received so many compliments. It was not too difficult at all. Her colors were turquoise and black. This is a homerun Wilton!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was worried about this cake because of the words but it was GREAT! Each layer was a different flavor. We put a silver heart on the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make sure to cut your layers square so they'll stack flat. Make sure the top layer is cut flat so the "I Do" topper will sit right. Heavily flavor the Wilton fondant if you use that brand. I use vanilla and marshmallow flavors. For the bottom layer, because it's so huge to roll out the fondant, use a flat table and coat it with a thin layer of Crisco so it doesn't stick. Your mat will not be big enough. The bottom board is covered with a thin layer of blue fondant. I bought four round wooden legs that have a screw hole in them and are a little flat on that part, and I screwed them to the bottom. That way when you transport the cake you can slip your hands under the board and not break the thin layer of fondant. The fondant layer over this board will dry and will break and flake off if you're not really careful. I would suggest painting the board a matching blue color and using a foil wrapped cake "cardboard" under the cake to protect the cake from the paint instead of putting a thin layer of fondant on the board.. Also, if you really want the beads that run around the bottom of each layer to match the cake, make them from the fondant. The icing won't match the color of the fondant. There is a mold you can get to make the beads.
