I'm doing my first weeding cake in a couple of weeks, three tiers, they just want a white cake with a shell border, they will be adding shells and what ever for a beach theme. Anyway, the tiers are 14, 10, and 6, with the shell border to a use a smaller shell as I go up from tier to tier since the tiers are getting smaller.............. Hopefully that makes sense
Thanks for any help you wonderful women and men can give me!
theres no need to do that, pick one size tip and do them all the same. tip 18 would do well on all sizes. But if you prefer the shells to be sized differantly do it, its personal choice really.
Have you seen this done? In my honest opinion I think the tiers would look a little uneven (maybe not the right word). I would recommend testing this out first on a dummy cake or just some boxes layered on each other just to make sure it is the look you want. If it is what you want, hey go for it, I would love to see a pic in the end.
It is a really cute idea, but just doesn't sit right in my head. Sorry
As a rule of thumb, I always use a bigger tip for the bottom border, and a smaller tip for the top border if I am doing one.
