I am basically a novice. I have mostly done buttercream and a small amount of fondant.
Here's my situation. My brother asked me to make cakes for my nephew's rehearsal dinner, of course at my cost. I want to do something nice, but not over the top. At this time, I have no idea how many people will be attending, but have been asked to make a chocolate, vanilla and a pound cake.
Ladies & gentlemen, give me your ideas & photos for a simple but classy looking cake.
TIA for your wonderful input, it is graciously accepted!
I'd keep it simple, especially since you'll be nervous trying to make everything perfect...I'd do three different rustic icing buttercream cakes with some flowers in coordinating colors on each cake. That way you can arrange a nice dessert table-type setup and the cakes will all coordinate with each other. Keep it simple and classy.
Or something like this, with fresh fruit. People love fresh fruit on a cake. When i was setting these up I had people banging on the window of the restaurant to get my attention so that they could give me the thumbs-up.
The fresh fruit is a good idea! Thanks!
