One of my best friends asked me to make her daughter's 16th birthday cake for this Sunday. The birthday girl wants a 3 tier cake with the colors pink, blue and yellow (one color per tier). She said she would like the blue tier to "have waves on it" because she's a swimmer. That's all she told me! I'm stumped for how to design this cake!! icon_redface.gif

The birthday girl told me that she's sure that I will come up with something that will be "nice". Ummmm, I could use a little more input! I've been browsing the galleries to come up with some inspiration so that I can start sending the birthday girl some pics to get a feel for what she would like, but no luck!

Anyone have a ideas? Thanks!

When I read pink, blue and yellow, all I can see is the middle tier blue waves, the top tier a yellow sun, and the bottom tier pink, maybe like a beach towel or something.

I was thinking the same thing. The yellow the sun and the pink either part of the sky or a towel...

Thanks for the replies, jennifer and jamiekwebb. I was thinking that order too. I just need to think of some way to decorate. The cake will be pretty boring if the tiers are just solid colors. I think I'll have to call the b-day girl and pry some ideas out of her icon_smile.gif

You could use yellow chunky sugar on the sun to make it sparkly.

I just went to Google Images and searched on "cake waves"--many cakes turned up and maybe you could get an idea from them:

Yay... sanding sugar for sparkle and then waves on the blue and maybe paint some hibiscus on the pink.... o you could make this so cool.

Waves need not be complicated. This one is nice (only you'd do it in blue):

Thanks for the replies!

Shanter: That cake from The Knot is beautiful! I already browsed google for waves. I have that tier decided, it incorporating the other two tiers.

Jennifer: the sanding sugar sounds like a great idea! Thanks, that will give the cake some sparkle too!

I found this one in the galleries....you could do something similar with the colors she likes. Maybe a little more grown up. ??
