I am doing an anniversary cake 2 tiers and round. I am doing an organic deign of light brown lines and leaves brushed with gold. A few small pink flowers with a gold brush and true gold bands around the bases. She wants her ring on top, but I don't know the best way to do that. I don't think it is going to look nice with just the small ring on top. Also she just sent me the pic of the ring and it is white gold. I am not sure hoew that is going to look with all of the gold on the cake?
Any easy suggestions for how to complete this nicely? Also I want to be able to hide the dowel. Thanks so much.
Why does the ring have to be small?
Use fondant or gp to form a 'bracelet' size (or similar large) ring. Work a bit of silver into the design.........a few silver leaves? to represent the 'white gold'.
I was thinking to run a it of silver in but did not want it to look to busy or like an eye sore lol... I like to see while I am doing it but really want to plan on this one.
So the ring u think would look nice almost as big as a bracelet - standing up kind of half in the cake? Is that what u mean. Also do u think I should do some silve leaves and some gold or just brush them woith both silver and gold?
I really want this to be nice.
I also thought about running the branches up to the top and putting the ring on 3 leaves that meet at the top, or a flower that I can do sightly larger and rufflier. If that makes any sence...
Thanks so much for any help. I am having trouble envisioning the ring on top.
Good idea... I thought about that but was trying to avoid making a box. I have only done it once, and it was not a ring box. Also with holiday stuff I want it to be less time consuming. I think I might have to do that though.
THanks for the help. I did not do the box only b/c I got sick and lost a day of work. I like the way it came out though. It is on my pic.s - thanks so much - it had the ring ontop obiously
It turned out really good! Sorry to hear you were sick.
