I'm making a 3 tier 10,7,6" for a 30th birthday on Saturday, last minute as a favour to a friend. All she's given me as direction is that she likes one I did in lime green, hot pink and white and that the birthday girl is "fancy & girly"

I'm thinking zebra stripes and dots? Help!!!!

And thanks icon_biggrin.gif

I like your idea, sounds super cute. Run with it, not too much time to over-think it right?

I'd vote for bottom tier striped, center tier wrapped in a big poofy bow, and top tier with dots...and her age standing up on top with some stars or dots on wires sticking out...sort of a nice general design but everyone loves it.

Well, if she's girly, she just might like a crown on top with her "30". I did my first tiara with white candy melts, using a template from the most saved photos section. There is a great tutorial if you search "royal icing tiara" and then just use candy melts instead. It was very quick and easy and beautiful.

Good luck!

Thanks everyone. I did think about a tiara but really don't think I have time to try anything new - I work full time and have a husband on afternoons this week, plus 2 little kids (5 & 16 months). I need to stick with what I know icon_biggrin.gif

I think I just needed some reassurance that my idea wasn't way off base. Better get started on my 30 to put on top!
