Have you ever had a cake that you just cannot figure out what the heck to do for the design??? I am having brain fog. I am doing a cake for tomorrow for my nephew's communion and I cannot for the life of me figure out how I want to design it...I have made a few gumpaste things to put on top but still cannot come up with an arrangement....Here they are and that is where all of you come in.....HELP....

What would be a great masculine arrangement? And what else should I add to complete this beauty??? It is a 10" round so far...although they do not need anymore cake...I will add a second teir if it will help with design!!!!!!!!! SO THROW THE IDEAS AT ME...I REALLY NEED THEM!!

Firstly, I want to say that the gp pieces you made look great! Very nicely done!

And, what I usually recommend - go to the gallery. I've seen so many cool cakes there that I've added to my favorites in case I ever need "that" cake for a certain occasion. I think there are so many great and diverse cakes; just a plethora of ideas. It's such a useful tool for inspiration.

The pieces you have look great - I think you need to trust yourself and just start, it will all fall into place. I don't think you need another tier if you have a nice big board that you could put some of your pieces on as well as on top. You are going to do great!!!

So here is my 2 cents. I would bake a 6' cake and off center it on the largers cake and then I would put his name and the chalise or bible on the top of the 6'. and then put the banner leaning on the side of the 6'(on the larger cake). Then I would take your other pieces and put them around the sides of the 10".
