This was my experience of learning to make wedding cakes from my Relief Society President. I had a fabulous time. I've always wanted to watch someone and she was happy to teach me her tricks. Now I'll know the ins and outs so I can make a better wedding cake than what I made when Ang got married. Hopefully my siblings and other extended family will let me make their wedding cakes (as a gift, of course).
