You can click on the cake for a larger picture, but the piping reads "And They Lived Happily Ever After". What a great way to start your fairytale life! To do the piping, I started by printing out the wording on paper with the printer's settings changed to "mirror image". Then I used a #1 tip to pipe faintly over the wording onto a sheet of parchment paper using royal icing. Once I finished piping, I carefully lifted the parchment paper, flipped it over, and placed it on my cake. That gave me a nice outline that I used to pipe over again using royal icing. Once the royal icing had dried I then went back and painted the words with Nu Silver.
There is one other thing I wanted mention, and it applies to all cakes. If the bride has a topper she wants to use on her cake, make sure you at least see it before the wedding day. This bride had a cute carriage topper, but it was on a large base. It hung off the sides of the initial 5" top tier, and it didn't look right. Luckily, I caught it in time to rebake the top as a 6" cake. And Wilton cake toppers have a nasty habit of securing their toppers to the box with lots and lots of screws!! So make sure you always carry a screwdriver in your emergency kit!
Thank you all so much for stopping by and visiting my little blog. I'll leave you with a little closer shot of that piping, just so you can see it better.
