I was given the opportunity to make my neice's wedding cake. She had no idea of what she wanted. I saw this and immediately knew she would love it! I emailed the picture from here, and received the response I knew I'd get - she LOVED it!! It is a beautiful cake! I had no problem following the instructions, and it turned out as beautiful as they intend you to do! It did take some time, but not any more time than any wedding cake would take! I also traveled 400 miles to deliver it! The bride and groom were VERY happy with it! If you want to see it, I have a pic posted on my website - www.dessertbydee.weebly.com

Beautiful but too crowded for me. I like simple less detailed cakes. It maybe I am less exeprienced decorator, but I love simple ones.
