Are the balloons too big for this cake? Sometimes I think yes, then I think no. Can't make up my mind. It is going tomorrow to my friend's for her daughter. Image

If you hadn't of asked I wouldn't have thought Those balloons are too big. I think it might look better though if you used the smaller balloons--water balloon size. I'm like you...I keep looking and thinking No, their okay. I think I'd have to see it with the smaller balloons to decide for sure. I don't think I'm any help at all on this--LOL!

I too would use the smaller balloons water size I think that is going to look better. right now all you see is balloons and you have taken from your cake..

I would use the smaller balloons. Your cake is so lovely - the big balloons just hide it. Sometimes big is not always better. Think of the balloons as accessories - not focal points. icon_smile.gif

BJ, good way of saying it. I think too that the cake is not being noticed first. The first thing you see are balloons. Although that is a nice touch, I never would have thought to add balloons to a cake.. I would go with the smaller balloons though.. Great Job!!

Personally I think the balloons overwhelm the cake and detract from it's beauty. Try using smaller balloons or instead of anchoring that close to the cake let Them float slightly above and see how that works.

Ok, I will go try smaller balloons. I think we have water balloons here somewhere...

thecakemaker Posted 3 Apr 2005 , 11:14pm

Nice idea but they do take the focus off of the cake. A little smaller would look great!

Well, now I am going to have to wait until tomorrow. The water balloons are in the camper which is packed up tight for winter storage and these balloons look funny if I blow them up smaller. We got hit with a snowstorm today, still a blizzard out there, so I am not going to the store. I'll have to take everything with me & try it there tomorrow. Thanks for your opinions! I really appreciate the input!

Nashsmom, I too think they should be smaller. The cake is very pretty! Great job!! ~TC~

PureShugga Posted 4 Apr 2005 , 5:02am

Bigger is better - I think they add a big wow factor to your great cake! Way to accessorize!!!

jscakes Posted 4 Apr 2005 , 5:13am

Since you've decided already I'll add my opinion...I'd go with smaller ones also. If you were to have the bigger ones in something like a vase off to the side they would be alright and not crowd the cake. You have done a great job on the cake!

flayvurdfun Posted 4 Apr 2005 , 9:58am

A little smaller I think...just a little....I dont see your pretty cake as much.....

chixbaby27 Posted 4 Apr 2005 , 7:53pm

I agree that smaller balloons would probably look better. That cake is beautiful and needs to be the focus of the attention.

yes, i would use much smaller balloons. at first glance i see the balloons, not the cake. I don't think the ballons altogether should be larger than the cake. The cake looks great icon_smile.gif

Good job on the cake- yes smaller in this case would be better.
