A friend of mine asked me to make a weddin cake for her. It will be a three tiered cake bottom layer white buttercream with chocolate buttercream swirls, middle layer will be solid chocolate buttercream, and top will be like the bottom. She also gave be four different colors of ribbon (creamy yellow, purple, orange, and a reddish color) she wants to use these around the tiers and incorporate her silk flowers. I think the cake would look just perfect without the flowers, but she wants them. Any ideas on how I can add those in? Also, she has a silver monogram to put on top. HELP PLEASE!

If it's just a few flowers, I think you could just add them to the corners of the bottom or middle tier, or both. Little clusters, you know?
Otherwise, the cascade down one side is really popular and cute.

You could use top plates and pillars and put them between the layers of cake. Easier stacking for you icon_wink.gif
