I'm wondering how do you get the basic needs and requests to the design and completion. I have a small wedding cake which needs to look a good size and in proportion. I have done a stacked 3 tier cake with false middle tier now I'm at a lose.
Do you draw to scale - which I've done on tracing paper then photocopy numerous times and sketch ideas?
Then I've got some ideas but if its a bride has requested colours - do you get yr colouring pencils out (shades is a problem here) or can you visualise it?
Should cakes be built on a specific design or are they made by trail and error 'as you go'.
The bride is looking at a masie fantasie/zoe clarke style cake with stripes, dots/circles but my concern is too many colours will look like a kids colouring in book not a classy cake. http://www.thecakeparlour.com/wedding-cakes/
As for shades you you get every single detail out of the bride such as ribbon colours, is there lace, is it a satin dress, traditional or vintage endless really.
I'm concerned that the cake style could clash with the wedding style. In addition think there is an option that the groom may wear tartan - bold colours!!!!!
Should I concentrate on an ivory cake with 1 or 2 ribbon colours but then the style isnt what she'd ask.
Help - I feel confused!
