One of the premier wedding planners in my area just contacted me about showcasing my work at a huge holiday bash he is having. He wantes to showcase me as a "Featured" cake vendor. His party theme is "Peppermints and Gents". The invation is mainly red and white with a black bow tie and pepperments.

 

Could you please shar some possible ideas for decorating a cake? I will be doing a 5-7 tier "dummy" cake and could really use some help on how to put this theme into a cake.

 

Thanks in advance!!!

Tux themes are super classy. I love the bowties around the middle of the layers like this.

And a top hat as the top layer would be so cool.

For peppermint themes, I love the fondant ropes that are layered around the top tier of this cake, I would use this somewhere in the cake. You could also do the pepermint looking flowers all over and one on the brim of the top hat.

I love the scallops in this one.
