Across the Threshold Cake
Texture is all-important on a pure white wedding cake. Here, the delicate furls of handmade roses and tine raised dots against smooth white fondant are so tempting your guests may want to reach out and touch them.
Makes: Cake serves 116.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizzy's Cakes from I made this cake for his brother and wife. The one thing is I didn't use fondant, they wanted it all in frosting. Even the roses. I set the cake up at the hall and I did all of them right there (reception and wedding was at the same place) and finished right before the wedding started. I did have an audiance watching, but it was fun. Plus I added two satalites and placed them on each side of the cake. This was one of my first wedding cakes and I enjoyed doing it. But it gave me lots practice on roses and now I am really good at them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mari'O from Three years ago, I made this wedding cake for my granddaughter. It included carrying it 700 miles, which added to the difficulty level. It was beautiful and just what she dreamed. She still talks about it. Hint: once the rose-making is complete, it goes together quickly. Use flavored gum paste to fashion the roses; they have sharper petals and will last longer than fondant/gum paste mix.

Rated 4 out of 5 by laurenleep from I did this cake when it was shown on Wilton.com as a buttercream only cake. It was for my cousin's wedding in Jan. of 2010. It turned out so beautifully. She used a different topper, one that suited her theme better. I made something like 180 buttercream roses. The bride loved it and told me she got many compliments on it. I wish fondant wasn't so popular, I LOVE BUTTERCREAM!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PegMcMuffin from This was one of the first wedding cakes I have ever done. The hardest part was making all the roses-which I love and do well-therefore I rate it somewhat easy. I modified it a little, making it 4 tiers instead of 3, put a fountain underneath it, and changed the color of the roses. But the simple design of the plain dots makes it so elegant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by baking diva from Mari'O, I just want to apologize for accidentally hitting "no" where it asks if the review was helpful. I was reading this on my so-called smartphone when my finger happened to touch the screen right where the thumbs-down icon was on your review, and no matter what I try it won't let me reverse it. I actually found your review quite helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cakes4all from This was the very first wedding cake that I decorated. I loved the look of it and the bride didn't have anything in mind and told me to do what I wanted. I put the difficulty as somewhat because I had never used fondant before, so for me it was difficult to get it just right. Love the looks of this cake and the bride was thrilled with it=)

Rated 5 out of 5 by DEBKELLY from This cake has lots of memories for me. My very pregnant daughter helped me make all the roses for this cake. This one I did for the mother of the groom of my very first wedding cake when she married 5 yrs. later. Overall It is easy to make once you get past the roses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RainSpirit from Not a trained decorator here.Learned what I know from practice and error. Did make this cake for a friends wedding and they were delighted. It wasn't difficult to create with instructions provided.
