This is by far the largest wedding cake I have done to date! The base is 18" square and the tiers are 6", 10" and 14" for about 140 guests. It weighs about 65 lbs as well!Edit
All three tiers are vanilla bean sour cream cake filled with raspberry preserves and filled and iced with vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream. Yum!
The couple requested that the groom's family crest be added somewhere on the cake. I made it out of gumpaste except the surname which was written on with edible marker.
The tiers were covered with fondant and wrapped with black satin ribbon. Gumpaste rings in the wedding colors of blue and black are arranged in a cascade down the front of the cake.
Congratulations to the happy couple - I hope it is a beautiful wedding!
