Traditional Homemade Wedding Cake

My son and his future bride asked me to bake their wedding cake for them, all chocolate inside and all white icing outside.

I used the groom's fudge cake from the Wilton site except I used 4 squares of chocolate instead of 3. I baked and froze all the cakes and then 2 days before the wedding,I started the decorations.

I started the complex part I made 2 = 8 inch layers -2 = 10 inch layers & 2 = 14 inch layers - served 80 people. It took many hours of just making the icing so, I decided that it would be less stressful for me to purchase pre-made roses.

I needed to add 300 of them on the cake. It took approx. 4 hours to decorate the cake and lots of tears on my part. I made myself stressed even though my husband made me little jigs for the garland in order to be exactly centered on each layer, I wanted everything perfect.

I added cascading roses from one layer to the other. I was so nervous bringing the cake to the hall, but after that I was happy the cake not only looked good - it tasted great!
