Beautiful cakes. How creative. Is your frosting buttercream or fondant? It is soooo smooth.

gmoakes: the bride and groom duckies can be purchased at Michaels. I think they're a Wilton product, but not designed as cake toppers.

That said, my first (and to-date only) attempt at a wedding cake was done on short notice when I was still in college and had no idea where to get toppers, so I ended up using 2" Smurf and Smurfette Easter figures, with a netting veil strung across Smurfette's bunny-costume ears. Since the whole "reception" was basically a surprise party in the dorm they were leaving (for an opening in married-student housing), it all worked out OK.

Your buttercream is so perfect! What recipe do you use? That is the latest I need to perfect.

Such smooth, crisp & awesome bc!!! Green w/envy! Do you use a specific method? or just practice makes perfect? Both themes came together very well.
