Hi all, I'm doing a faux cake here for a display for a catering company that I am working with. WHat do you think the cake needs for decorations? It is all white fondant with polka dots, stripes, and diamonds painted with super pearl dust. I was thinking of doing a big looped bow on top and some bows on the side. Can anyone else help inspire me for decorations? Should I do gumpaste flowers? What kind of flowers? Any help is appreciated....THANKS! OOH...also....do you like the off center look...OR should I put the cake more straight forward?

I don't see a cake when I open that link. Can you attach it somehow or put it in your photo album?
it sounds beautiful though
To use the [img] code, you have to upload the photo to a photo hosting site, for example photobucket.
Your cake does sound wonderful, though.
Sorry. When I was attaching the photo my computer crashed. I have been having trouble with my pc. Anyhoo...here is the photo. Your comments are very much appreciated. THANKS!
I think its really beautiful. Maybe just a topper would really complete it.
I'd love to see some flowers (gumpaste or silk) on the top and on the large blank triangles on the top of the bottom tier.
That is very clean and elegant work!
I second the flowers! I think some pale pink lilies, or peonies, would look really pretty on your cake.
Maybe a beautiful wide ribbon bow (GP) with streamers that would flow all the way to the bottom tier in a striking color Yep, I would like that!
yes, I agree with the bow with tails draping sown onto the table.
Are you keeping it monochromatic? I think it would be lovely to have a white bow and ribbon. If you are going with some color definately pale pink.
I also like the look of dots or dragees placed where the diamonds meet, i think it dresses them up a bit.
I just quickly searched "diamond" in the gallery and got these cakes, the first is very elaborate and the second is more of what I was thinking.
I love it, love it!!! I wouldn't add any flowers or bows personally, but perhaps a bit of greenery when displaying it. With an intended topper, this will look gorgeous!
i would go with the GP bow...
I third the vote on a beautiful bow with streaming ribbons painted with the luster dust. Great job.
Thanks everybody for your advice. I think I will add some pearls or silver dragees to the diamonds (where they meet). I think I will do a multi looped bow on top with tails flowing out painted in the pearl luster dust and add some pale pink flowers to the sides. Thanks!
