I am making a wedding cake this weekend and the bride wants the design that is on the unity cake which is dots. A "V" shape (of dots) coming down from the top of each layer and then at the tip end of the "V" have two dots and then a "tear Drop" The icing will be white BC and she doesn't want any other color. The only decorations will be the "V" at the top of each layer (4 tiers) and dots around the base. My question -will this look good using BC white dots - seems like the dots will not show up every well. What is your thoughts!

I think you will be fine, I've done a white bc cake with white dots before and I thought it looked really elegant.

If you want a slight difference in color use two different types of buttercream icing. I would use a light ivory (since this is the color of my icing anyway) then i would make a batch of wilton class icing that is white white and it would be just enough of a difference that the pictures should come out really well.

I am wondering if the small edible pearls might look good. I know you can get them in all different sizes. I do think the dots would look really pretty. Good luck with the cake! icon_smile.gif

Thanks for all of your response. I feel much better about using white on white.
