Here is the wedding cake that I made for my daughter's wedding. Each layer was suppose to be double layered cakes but the wedding guest count was very small so I made single layer cakes instead. The roses are also made of fondant but I elected to do them 1 petal at a time so they look more realistic. I make my own fondant and butter cream icings. I'm particular about my fondant and most "store bought" fondants just taste nasty. What do you guys think... do you think I have a chance of doing this full time?

The cake looks wonderful. Very well done. Yes you could do this professional. You did a great job. But the question is now how does it taste? Here let me take that bottom piece and I will let you know. Then I will tell ya if you can do it full time. Kidding hun. Wonderful job. Kudos to you.

Ahh the taste is great. That is what started this whole thing. I've always been known for my super moist cakes and the fondant that I make isn't as sweet as some others I've tasted. But hun you should know that "bottom piece" is 14" so you'd be eating cake for awile. Thank you very much for your comment.

Now you sound like my husband. He loves me baking cakes because you have to level them and the piece that you cut off has always been proclaimed as his. Just give him a glass of milk and he's all set.

Thank you very much. This was my first wedding cake and I was very nervous. lol I really loved doing the roses and I've ordered a couple of DVD's on doing sugar flowers. I think they are beautiful and I find them relaxing to do. My husband watched me do them for a couple of min. and said "oh no way" and went to watch t.v. lol

That is a cute cake. I have heard that fondant is hard to work with. I would certainly try to make a go of doing it as a job if I were you. There are plenty of people in this world who are willing to pay someone to do cakes for them.

I don't really find fondant hard to work with. The main thing is that you have to keep your nails short or you'll constantly be putting little cuts into it. It's kinda like playing with a really soft play dough. lol

The cake is so beautiful. I like the color of the flowers. The look so real. I think you could do it full-time. I really hate the store bought cakes they always taste nasty. I think yours is more prettier than a store bought one anyday..
