I think you did a great job on the cake. I don't think it needs a border, it is beautiful the way it is. One question, how do you get your cake so flat and so round? Mine always seem to get a little bit lopsided or uneven.
The cake looks Great! I wouldn't add a border....might look like too much?
It looks great the way it is ! A border might be to much ! Your edges look great why not show them off !
Ditto, why mess with a good thing?
I agree...it's close to perfect, and your edges are awesome-nice job!
If anything maybe a tiny bead border at the bottom but I would keep it the same color as the rest of the icing so it doesn't take away from the decorations, definitely nothing at the top though, great job on smoothing it!
Thank you for all the feedback!
Amyfj1 - I owe the flat top and straight round sides to Sugarshack. I invested in her buttercream DVD. It has proven to be invaluable. A cliffnotes version is you use a hot bench scraper to smooth the sides and a small cake spatula to take the icing off the top. You hold the spatula horizontally while pushing the icing back away from the edge. Does that make sense? I really would recommend getting the DVD.
I think it looks great! My opinion would be, to add the green stems all the way around on the bottom. The flower on the bottom left looks really cute with the way you made the stem on it. So, I think if you would add it all the way around or to each of the flowers at the bottom it would look just as cute.. Just my opinion..
Anyway, do what you think is right for the cake. It does look adorable! Great Job!!
I don't think so...I think it looks FANTASTIC as it is! Good job
Perfect like it is!!!!
I personally am not a fan of the boarder on most cakes. I think that the cake looks fine without one.
