Hi,
I have an order for a wedding cake that is all white. How do I sketch this so the bride can get a true idea of what it is going to look like? This cake is so plain I don't think she understands. If I just make a pencil drawing it still looks
better than it is going to. It's not the fact that it will be all white that bothers me its the design. I mean if that's what she wants fine no problem, but I don't think she gets it.

Could you make up a little square of fondant (or buttercream, as the case may be) decorated with some of the design to show her? Maybe then it would sink in.

What type design does she want? Can you find a picture in a book, magazine or on CC that looks similar to what she is wanting?
