Tips

This cake serves 282. The top tier of a wedding cake is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of servings given does not include the top tier.



Always place a separator plate on the
cake before you position any figurine or ornament. This protects both the cake and your keepsake. For extra stability, secure your ornament to the plate with tacky craft tape.
