I think make fondant balls of the various colors and make ball/bead borders around the base of each tier, and then if you have time to make some sort of cross or something on top that will dress it up!

Nice job!

***Edit, how about a number 1 on the top and some wires with dots or beads sticking out...?****

I agree with Ketagrl. Just a border of some kind around the base of each tier and it's perfect. I like the fondant balls in all the colors suggestion.

It's beautiful and it is so funny for me to see my name on a cake. For many many years I was the only Jada and now I see/ hear it a lot!
