First cake to be seen in public haha. This is my sisters engagement cake. (There is a layer of baking paper between the two layers just so I could stack it together for the photo). Wired hearts will be bent but not until the night - I'm worried the wires may weaken and flop.

What do you think? Is the top layer too plain? Suggestions gratefully received.

I don't think it's too plain at all - I think the whole thing is gorgeous. There is a lot to be said for simple and elegant, and this cake is definitely it!!

Thank you. I prefer the plain look to overdone....but I don't want it to look like it's missing something or looks bare..... icon_rolleyes.gif

I too think it is quite elegant. Send us a picture of the finished product, with the hearts all bent like you want them and the paper between the layers removed, if you can. I'd really like to get the full effect of your creation. icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

I think it is beautiful. If you add anything else on the top it will be too busy. Great job! icon_smile.gif

It's lovely -- your sister will love it!!!! I, too, tend to be in the "less is more" camp, so I think it's perfect the way it is.
