Thanks...It seems that it is missing something. I think it is prolly just the "sparkle" from the "jewels" and luster dust that will be on the actual cake. It is going to be a brooch on the bottom tier. I wanted to make it out of RI- make it like a tiara and add cake diamonds to it. I sketched it by hand initially but wasn't able to get the jewel idea to come thru so I used a combo of Paint and Artrage. So much fun! I can't WAIT to see what they say!


Here's the link to the Artrage program- It has a limited free version but the full version is only $25. A very good program!

thanks I'll have to check it out!! I'm contemplating buying that wedding cake pro program...just because it seems like it'd be so fun to make all different designs and mess around lol

I really like it. See if you could make one of the middle ones read cake and the cream colored icing,

FWIW, I think you need to swap the designs on the bottom two tiers. I think the "heaviest" pattern should be on the bottom. And I've seen belted/banded effects on bottom teirs and really feel they look better on an upper tier. The belt/brooch is a focal point, it should be "higher". Kinda nitpicky, but sketch it the other way and compare. Otherwise a beautiful design. Really nice.
