What could I have added?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
This was a last minute cake for someone, they asked for a rainbow and a sun. I know if I had more time I could have done more to this cake but I would like to get some ideas from you guys. The lady loved the cake but I thought it was a little plain. What's your thoughts?

I hope this attachment works!

Thanks ladies....I like the pot of gold idea! Maybe put pots of gold or clouds on the side of the cake next time. Appreciate the input.

I think your cake looks great. I love the star sprinkles around the border. I love the idea with the pot of gold. Maybe Blue Sky darker at the top then lightened up at the bottom?

If you didn't really want to add anything, although all the suggestions are good ones, maybe the rainbow could have been a little larger, but basically I think the cake looks great! Janice

bigcatz...your cake looks just perfect! I really like it as is but if you wanted to have less white next time you could ice or spray the top blue.
