I'm after some examples of bright, colourful, whimiscal, but single tier designs. I suspect I'm trying to cram too much onto one poor round cake.

By whimsical, do you mean tapered on the sides, or just the designs on it?

I work in only buttercream, but I consider this to be a whimsical design (in the style of Peter Max) on a 12" round:

If I have misunderstood your request, I hope others chime in to offer more suggestions icon_smile.gif

Sugarshack has a cake that was for a baby shower, but the colors and decos are so wonderful you should take a look. One layer, whimsical.

You can still look at multi-tiered cakes for inspiration. Just look at the top tier!

I think the biggest display of single-tier whimsical in Cake Central is held by Pish. Small, colorful, whimsical works of art. I love every single one of them. Maybe it will give you some ideas.

Wow! Beautiful. What type of fondant do you use? You cakes all have this beautiful sheen to them. Mine always look greasy if I try to shine them with shortening.
