Do you think it would look weird to have Hello Kitty on top of a loopy bow topper, stuck on a cake that has pale, glittery pink hibiscus flowers at the base of each tier?

I thought it would look great together...I've got some smaller flowers in blue and white, and some pastel leaves. My husband came home and saw all the flowers and said it was going to be the weirdest cake in history, and that Hello Kitty is a cartoon so she should just have flat flowers on the cake.

So what do you think? If the flowers match the colors in the topper, will it look okay? Or should I just go with flat flower cut-outs stuck on the sides of the tiers like my husband thinks? The lady I'm making the cake for doesn't care, she just wants it "as done-up as possible" and I owe her a huge favor so I want it to be really nice.

I think it would look really cute! Just because there is a cartoon on the cake doesn't mean everything has to be cartoonish!

You listen to your husband? Huh, I'll have to try that some time. : )

I think 3-D is always cooler than flat pieces on a cake. I say go for it. I think the color scheme will be more important to pull off the Hello Kitty theme. Good luck!

Oh, cute picture! (And Hello Kitty is 3D-ish in it too icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif ) I will show him.

It's funny, when my husband saw the sketch of the cake that I did originally, he said it was too plain because it was all in shades of pink with the flat flowers. So I was worried about it being too plain. Then, when I went to get the money for the ingredients, the lady I'm making it for had seen the picture of my daughter's birthday cake that I made this past weekend, with big flowers, and she went on about how the flowers were gorgeous. I told her I could make some for her daughter's cake, and she said, "I don't care what's on it. We're just too excited that we're getting one of your cakes, my daughter carries that sketch around with her all the time," and then started talking about the flowers that she had on her wedding cake, which I figured meant that she'd like some 3D flowers but was afraid they were too much trouble and didn't want to ask for them.

Here in Hawaii Hello Kitty always has hibiscus or plumeria instead of the little bow. I think it'd be cute!!
