I have a cake coming up for a good friend of mine. It's a 2 tiered beauty.
My question pertains to the bottom tier.
My friend is a big fan of Lululemon fitness attire, and even more of a fan of the color purple (not the book, the actual color) . My plan is to cover the bottom tier in the Lululemon "manifesto" (except that I'm changing the background color from red to purple).
Should I attach the icing image to the cake in panels (repetitive panels) or in a decoupage style (kind of patchy looking)? I am just worried that there will be "TOO MUCH GOING ON", know what I mean? I plan to put the lulu lemon emblem logo in the center of the tier to give the eye something to focus on.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
I vote for panels. I never like the look I get when layering image sheets. They are a little thicker than regular paper, and you see that thickness anytime they overlap. If you are talking about just small word "pieces" on a buttercream or fondant covered cake, it will be hard to get the background color of the image to match the color of the cake.
However you decide to go, I am sure your friend will love it - it is a very cute idea!
OH! I didn't even consider the thickness of the icing sheets! Thanks so much for bringing that to my attention.
What about if I cut the sheets in a way that I can piece them back together at different angles, so that they don't over lap? I do want to cover the entire tier in the icing image.
Any more thoughts?
I thought about it, I am just going to straight panel the pieces onto the cake. So excited!
