What are you most proud of? That I transported all the un-iced cake layers, icing, and tools I thought I would need, 200 miles the day before the wedding, stacked, crumb-coated, iced, piped and assembled this cake with 1-1/2 hrs to spare. It turned out exactly as planned plus it stayed upright and in perfect condition, despite the heat from the ovens that were being used in the same open room. Most important of all.... the bride and groom LOVED IT, as well as many many guests.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan WAYYYYY in advance. Buy cake dummies and stack them up, including the separator wedges, so you can get a much clearer idea of how it'll turn out.

Is this buttercream? Was it harder to handle? Beautiful work!

Love the piping.

Thank you :) It takes a little practice to make sure the swirls are round and connect. Looking at other swirl patterns in the cake world, I tend to notice right away when any swirls are not round (they have distracting flat spots which, draws my eye right to them).
