This is AMAZING! I'm extremely impressed, especially for someone who is self-taught. I'd like for you to tell me if I'm guessing wrong in something. I'm assuming the actual edible cake portion is the seat only. While the back of the chair also looks the same I can't see how the cake would remain in this upright position. Am I correct?

The seat is cake, the back and headrest are rice crispy treats, a favorite of the groom. And the arms and trim are modeling chocolate . Thank you for the kind words.:-)
