Woo hoo!! We have a cake baker for our wedding cake!!
My brother in law does it profesionally, but his specialty is kids cakes and shapes with fondant...and we do not want any fondant...so initially he refused. Apparently my sister convinced him it would be easy, and cheaper to do the cake than buy us a gift...so he is doing the cake.
He is still worried about one of his cakes being the center stage to look at item at the reception, but the concept and pictures make it look easy....
