Okay, they are both lovely but I choose the 2nd one bc it does take the attention to the top however, my 10 year old son and my 11 yr old daughter both like the first one!!!!
The first picture IMO. It is random but so perfectly balanced without having an actual pattern. That is the KEY to a great painting as well as a cake.
Anyone can follow a pattern. Also...if you want a huge cake but don't really need it, make the bottom tier or two out of styrofoam....or freeze and eat later
I like side 2 better. I keep going back and looking, but my eye is more drawn to side 2.
Here is a question for anyone. How do you get the roses to stay on the side of the cake? I just made my first roses yesterday but they are just sitting on top. I can't imagine getting them to stay on the side. Although I know there are ways because I have seen beautiful cakes with cascading roses.
Darkchocolate, I squeeze a bunch of RI onto the bottom of the rose, then stick it to the side of the cake and hold it for a bit, until it stays.
then I pray.
But these roses made it through several visits last night... in and out of the car, trips to a couple of different places, and I only lost one rose, after quite awhile.
They are both beautiful! I like the first one the best.
Tell your kids thanks for their opinions!!! There will be a good number of kids at the wedding, so getting some thoughts from the little ones is important, too. What do they think about one of the tiers being something like a FunFetti cake... white cake with lots of colored candy melts in it?
I like #two but love #1. Just my opinion but like the others I think the spray of flowers looks more natural. I don't really think it takes away from the top layer at all. Congratulations on the wedding and making your own cake. I want to make my own cake too, now all I have to do is wait for the divorce to be final and find someone to marry. LOL
Both are beautiful. My votes on #1, however I think it would come down to the set-up. You are going to be really busy getting last minute things done.. do you want to attack 200 roses, or just 100 roses. Either way, it's going to look gorgeous.
you can't go wrong with either. both a beautiful. i like #2 a little better.
congratulations on marrying your best friend
I like number 1 for the simple fact I wam one of those strange people that when I get a peice of cake I like icing and with all the extra roses I would get all that yummy frosting.
I like the first one. To me, it's easier to look at. Something about the pattern on the second one throws it off for me.
Beautiful cakes....I prefer the second one though!! Best of luck!!
Both are beautiful but I vote for # 1
I like both but, I prefer the 1st one
OMG - I can't decide!! I like them both - your roses are beautiful.
Congratulations - you are one brave lady to undertake doing your own cake on your special day.
I prefer the side 1, with the diagonal roses. Or have you thought of puting a single row along the bottom of the bottom tier, to match the top tier.
I like the second one.
I like both of them but I vote for # 1.
Both are beautiful I like the FIRST one. I looks complete!!
Congruatulations on your upcoming wedding. If I would have gotten bite by the cake decorating bug earlier in like... I would have also made my own cake.
You go girl!!
Wow, they are both GORGEOUS!!
I'm leaning towards #1, though, for the more random reason stated above.
Congratulations and best of luck to you both.
I think I like the 1st picture (side 2) better. They're both pretty, but I think the tiers in the 1st one compliment each other more.
I like the first one ... it's more fulll and "lush", more luxurious
I like the 1st one! When I think of roses I think more natural and with the first cake it looks natural. I like both designs but, my eye is on the first!
Great job and designs! Congratulations BTW!
beautiful work!! I did this Wilton cake for my daughter's wedding - all 3 tiers based on your top tier showing. I vote for number two - the first view appears "bottom heavy" and thus "squatty". Are these cake terms??? probably not - but that's how I see it visually. CoNgratulations on your upcoming wedding. May God bless you in your marriage and remember to always love, honor, and cherish each other. Marriage with your best friend is the THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD!!!
Yes that was what was wrong for me, just did not think of it before you wrote it (havingfun)
Nr.1 looks heavy.
I like the 2nd one better. The first one just looks too busy to me - the 2nd one is cleaner and more elegant.
I love the top design, very romantic. Reminds me of the Cupcake Cafe Bakery style of decorating. Lovely!
beautiful, one seems to go together, two seems to be missing something.
