My Fiance has decided that he would love to make our wedding cake! He is a good amateur baker, and has more that 18 months to practice, but I can’t help but feel a little apprehensive. I would love to see examples of some wedding cakes that have been created at home. Any tips or advice I could pass on to him would also be greatly appreciated.

We had cascading cakes, instead of one stacked cake. For an amateur baker, they are much easier, because you don’t have to worry about a tier sliding off, or not being strong enough to hold the next tier up. They could be more decorated than ours were, but ours can give you at least the general idea.

Does he have cake decorating experience? If not, I suggest he take a class. He’ll need a lot of tools too, if he doesn’t already have them.
There’s plenty to learn that isn’t very hard. I decorated at Safeway for 2 years. The qualifier? “Do you want to work in the deli or bakery?” “Bakery?” I responded. “Have you ever decorated a cake before?” they asked. “Uhh, no.” “That’s fine. You start Tuesday.”
The bar at Safeway is pretty low, so if a bunch of 18-year-olds off the street can learn to do it, I’m sure he’d have no trouble.
