My Maid/Matron of Honor made ours. It turned out bigger than I thought, but still gorgeous.

I highly recommend the Wilton cake decorating classes at your local craft store (Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc). Their recipe for butter cream is horrible, but you really learn how to make all sorts of frosting flowers and borders. Its really not that hard and its very relaxing!

Real Simple’s website has a really nice gallery of cakes.
Also, not sure if you already have a recipe or not for frosting… but this is an ahMAzing one I found right here on WB! http://www.weddingbeepro.com/2009/07/17/my-favorite-vanilla-buttercream-recipe/#more-15730

Check out Wilton’s Website for a “How-to” (if you don’t already know) about using dowels & cake boards. It will make your life a lot easier 🙂
I love this one!

This would be gorgeous with real flowers instead of the sugar ones… but defintiely check out wilton cake classes at michael’s if you have one in your area.
