I like all those ideas! I love the tall cakes and also thought about throwing some gold in there for the glam effect. I only have 2 weeks so I have to get my design nailed down. Thanks for your input!!!
Wow! That sounds awesome. As you described it, I envisioned it also! The infinity symbol is a sideways 8. I could put one of those on each side of the monogram! I really like the idea of the cascading flowers too. I'm going to draw up some ideas. I'll post a pic when I complete it. Thanks!!!
Ok. I just received an order for a birthday cake for a 12 year old. They are allowing me to do whatever I want as long as I include these aspects:

Thanks you guys. mgreen44, I think they are at least 4" tall, maybe more. leah_s, I had thought about those sizes too and it'll get me close. I think I'm going to go with the 6, 9, 12 and 15 and go at least 4 ' tall. This will give me the look, height and servings.
Great idea ladyhawke917. I hadn't thought of either of your ideas, lights or gelatin shapes. Maybe that's something I can experiment with when I have more time. I ended up doing a splatterpaint on white 2 tier using those neon colors. She loved it.
