Hmmm...well, how many servings? Tiers? Sheet cake? Fondant? Buttercream? Flavors? Fillings? Lots of possibilities....you could start by going into the galleries and looking at the Anniversary cakes. You will probably get some inspiration there!

That is a beuatiful cake! Very sparkly. How about ordering some cake jewels...some diamonds to be exact? Those could be incorporated nicely into just about any design you come up with!

3 tiers, buttercream & fondant, I just mainly want ideas how to decorate it. I was thinking pearl white, with little diamonds all over it...or white or silver sanding sugar...or white flakes or whatever its called.

Here is where you can get cake jewels...kinda pricey, but definitely easier than making them!

What about using a costume jewelry brooch or two (or three) like this cake...

So i just did a cake for my grandparents 54th Anniversary. My mom wanted the design to be a diamond design. So i had a Diamond Candy mold that i used. I melted white chocolate and then coloured it to what i wanted it to be. I made a 3 tier cake and then put the diamonds around the cake.

what about doing a diamond ring in a box? I know that The Cake Girls have a couple of cakes in their albums under "specialty/bridal". www.thecakegirls.com....you could make it more anniversary like with the box being a different color or a different style ring...or even do a diamond necklace inside a box like the new "past present and future" necklaces!!! icon_biggrin.gif

good luck with whatever you do! icon_biggrin.gif

Now i've only been doing this for about two months. Hopefully the more i do, the better i get. The cream cheese for the outside wasn't coming out as nice as i thought.
