Hi there, when I read your post one question came up. And that is why are you making three 12' cakes, if its a 3 tier cake. Doest it has to be in three different sizes like 12', 9' and 6'( something like that). Maybe its me but I'm a bit confused.

For the decorations, I would cover the bottom tier with dark purple and the second one with a lighter purple and the top tier with a lighter purple than the second one. Something like this,

There is only two tiers in that photo, but hope you get the idea.

You can make a topper with stars fixed into wires. You could do them with black and silver.Something like in these photos.

You can use a small star cutter and cut out some stars with black and silver and do a boader at the bottom of each tier. Like a black boarder at the bottom tier and a silver boader at the bottom of the second tier and again a black boader at the bottom of the top tier.

I don't know whether it will work, this idea just came to my mind. If you can do a sketch and see how it looks.
