If you got someone within in your family who knows how to bake and is quite creative offer this idea to him or her. At least you will have a companion when you attend a wedding cake decorating class.
As for the baking part, it would be quite easy for you. You can either bake the cake or just simply order plain cakes with no icing on it straight from the bakery. Ordering can be costly compared you baking the cake but this can save you much time in the process. There are even bakeries who are selling plain cakes plus they offer workshops or seminars regarding on decorating a wedding cake.
It is highly recommended that you put to practice whatever you have learned during the workshop. Why not create a miniature version of the wedding cake you are planning to have. Another option is getting a Styrofoam that is shaped like a cake and then start decorating it. Examine and discover what the areas that need more practice are. Remember, the outcome might be different compared to the real cake but the techniques used will be just the same.
There will be a lot of trial and error before you can even say; this is the perfect wedding cake. You should be patient and just take things slowly. If you commit a mistake, use icing to hide the flaws. Your cake need not to be as perfect like those professional bakers do but it’s the creativity and the effort that you put into that does matter.
