I am doing my first wedding cake next week (excited ) and I finally met with the bride today (friend of a friend). Anyway I knew her theme (celestrial) and came up with a sketch which she loved, but wanted to modify a little.
It is a 3 tier (12, 10, cake with one tier including suns, the next one moons, and the top stars. The cake is all white buttercream with fondant accents (suns done in a soft yellow and the moon/stars in white/silver). I originally had them stacked, but she would like the top tiers (10 & stacked and a separator between them and the bottom (12). In other words the sun tier is separated from the moon/stars tiers.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a separator? She left it up to me, but I can't decide what would best go with the theme... pillars, filled pillars, globes, ???? Just not sure. HELP!
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I for one like to use different orginial things for seperators. I got tired of the pillared look. Very out of fashion, especially with all the new trendy cake art out here. I like to go to the craft stores and look in the iron rod sections, or the candle stand sections. Sometimes you can find stars or many other interesting things , that make your cake stand out with the design. Good luck
Just noticed my 8 came out weird. Sorry about that. You can probably tell I meant 12, 10, 8 sized tiers.
Shows I'm having a brain freeze day, I didn't even think about something different than the standard "wedding" stuff. I like the funky stuff and so does the bride. Thanks for getting me to think "outside the box".
how about a globe that looks like it's dotted with deep space type stars?
Thanks a bunch for the ideas. I really appreciate them.
I agree about going to craft store and just looking around for ideas. I could spend hours in Hobby Lobby just staring at things thinking of how I could use them with cakes
