I have a cake ordered for a 50th anniversary party that will be 3 tiers chocolate with raspberry filling and vanilla bean buttercream icing. Any ideas for decorating with a "sailboat" theme with orange flowers?

I had initially thought of "sand colored" icing with some gold dusted seashells and some orange hibiscus, but can't seem to get my head around how to put a sailboat into the décor....

Top Tier - Sand and Beach Chairs

Middle Tier - Seashells

Bottom Tier - Ocean and Sailboat

 

Just a thought! icon_wink.gif

Great idea. I think I will do the bottom tier in light blue BC with darker blue "waves' and a sailboat. Tier 2 with white BC and gold dusted seashells and "pearls" around the  base. Tier 3 white BC with orange hibiscus flowers and "50" in gold on top.
