First thought was of dominoes falling icon_redface.gif...

Err, that's a hard one!

I'd ask her what she has in mind. My idea of a ripple effect and hers might be quite different.

can you do a take on the classic water drop photo?



ripple effect concept -- that my actions to day are like a drop in a pond -- the ripples spread out in all directions to touch and affect many, many people and lives.


pond setting for effect?

on top of a round cake -- lots of BC overlayed with fondant and then round bowls of graduated sizes/diameters pushed down on top to create the valleys between the ripples?

for center -- fondant shaped and dried and then little round drop on a wire?


that globe would be great too -- probably have to be some combination of gumpaste, wire and maybe royal icing

My first thought would be like a single heart on the top of the cake with her and her new husband then as the cake goes down to the bottom tier more hearts, then more, then more and even a graduating color to the bottom starting with i.e. a soft green into a forest green. Love starts with just the two of them and then reaches or "trickles down" to the many.

I also had thought something along the lines of the buttercream and bowl idea... you made it sound way better than how I was thinking... anymore ideas???
