This is my first dummy cake. I kind of like it, and I kind of don't ~ know what I mean? It needs something on the bottom, but I don't know what. (I was having problems with my clay gun, so I gave up for the night.) Any ideas, thoughts, comments about how to finish this one up so it looks like a nice, small wedding cake?
what if you put a horizontal line in the middle of the cake and attached a bow made of fondant?
What color line, blue or tan? Also, I was thinking of putting some tan swiss dots on the bottom. Would that be too much?
both would look nice, maybe tan since you already have blue around the bottom???
Some scrolls would look nice. I think a bow would compete too much with your topper.. make it a bit busy. I'd do tan for the accent since you have the blue fondant rope around the base.
With the lines on the top I'd do something "swirly" at the bottom to mimic the flowers at the top. I'd stick w/ tan for color. Otherwise, GREAT JOB!
I think more flowers on the bottom and I think the bow idea is cute. I am about to do my first dummie cake. How did you get the fondant to stay on?
Your topper is really pretty! It is a cute cake!
I think maybe you need to add a couple more flowers to the ones sitting on the bottom tier. Like in bunches of 3 or 5.
Maybe a little something on the bottom tier or some more bunches of flowers along the bottom. I think the bottom looks a little plain against the top tier. Of course I have an understanding of the over detailed cake, so I wouldnt go too crazy.
I was thinking dots.
I think you should cover the bottom board with tan fondant to set off the white cake. Trim the board with either tan ribbon or blue, i think blue would be best.
For the bottom cake i think swirls in tan and blue.
Thanks for everyone's input on this. I finished it today with tan swirls on the bottom layer. I was not totally thrilled with the look of the cake (it's not what was in my head, know what I mean?), so I just did the swirls and quit. Next time I will take more time with it. Anyway, here is the finished product!
I think the end result is quite nice!
The only thing I might have done different (and please take what I say with a grain of salt as I'm very new at this) is maybe done some of the small swirls in blue. Other than that I think you did a great job!
