I made this cake for my daughter's bridal shower, and she loved it! The fondant was much easier than I could have imagined, as it was my first time using it. I was very happy with the instructions in the Wilton Yearbook. It turned out beautifully and the entire bridal party was impressed.

I made this cake and WOWed the whole party. It was for a little girls birthday. She wanted a "Princess Bride" so I decided this was the cake. She was so excited and happy, the cake made her cry and give me a huge hug. I found the drapes the hardest part, took a couple of practice tries, but I got it. I used pink and purple roses.
