You are going to get a kick out of this. This is not a real wedding cake. It's actually a practice wedding cake for the wedding of the letters Q and U for my son's kindergarten class in a couple of weeks. After school the other day, his teacher and some of the parents were talking about the upcoming nuptials, and his teacher asked who would like to make a wedding cake. Stupidly, I answered, "I Do!" (No pun intended.) Have I ever made a wedding cake? No. Have I ever made anything that would remotely come close to one? No. But I thought it would be fun. I decided that I wanted to practice first. So I did.
Mistake #1. I made the bottom layer out of Rice Krispie Treats, and it's not thick enough. It's also a different color than the other two layers even though they're all covered in white frosting underneath the fondant.
Mistake #2. I got impatient towards the end and messed up. Most of that is either covered up by flowers or in the back.
Mistake #3. I didn't level the cakes so the top is kind of lop-sided.
