She's thinking about 100 people. I need to talk to her about what she'd like. She'll be visiting in a couple weeks and we will go through most of the details then.

I'd agree that the Wilton wedding cake book and the Cake Bible are both good resources. Wilton puts out new books every year so you can get a huge variety of styles.

There's also a good thread that was started a long time ago on wedding cakes. I'll try to find it for you and bump it up.

If you need to order materials and such, www.kitchengifts.com is where I used to order all of my decorating supplies. (ahhh, the good old days! )

You're such a nice sister!!!

British wedding cakes are traditionally a rich fruit cake, marzipaned and with a fine icing and decorations. Traditionally, the top layer is preserved to be served at the christening of the first child of the marriage!
