My idea well has run dry. LOL! I have a bride wanting a wedding cake, this is the info she gave me...

round, 3 tiers, canary yellow with big bold black polka dots or white with black polka dots, some fresh fruit as the decoration like strawberries, raspberries,blackberries cherries, simple and bold, i do not like is 'too busy'
I'm not picky, i wouldn't even mind being surprised with what u come up with from what i described. But really i am not going to be picky about a cake, after all its just cake!

But even though 'its just cake' I really do need some help with the design. And to make it more fun. This is gonna be her topper...


icon_confused.gif I love a challenge but does anyone remember that old kids song? What's Wrong With These Pictures?
One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong.

Keeps playing in my head!!! LOL!

Hi there! Well with that information...I would try and tackle all her requests by doing the yellow cake...perhaps the bottom (and biggest) layer with polka dots...then have the middle tier with no polka dots but a nice black satin ribbon/bow around the edge, and then the top tier with smaller polka dots and the topper.

I don't know...I think the fruit request is over kill with the polka dots and the yellow...unless it is one of those tiered cakes that don't have the pillars in between each layer...then you could sort of drape the fruit around the sides a bit...?

Good luck with it anyways! thumbs_up.gif

The white with black polka dots might work, 3 tiers stacked and then trim and roll all the fruit in sugar to mute the colors and group them like sprays of flowers off center on each tier. Maybe even make a few yellow roses and filler leaves or something to go with the 'spray' of fruit.

I picture off-white (to match the topper)with tiny black dots. Blackberries would look nice with this design, the blackberries would go with the rustic feel of the topper. http://www.flickr.com/photos/suziegoombs/2722635969/
