Cake Design...Too Much?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I need the professional and critical eye of you folks here...I'm concerned my cake idea is too busy.   never done a cake this big.

 

As i mentioned in another thread, I am making my daughters cake for her birthday.  She wants this monstrosity...three tier....

 

I want it to be sassy and fun but pretty.  There will be a tiara on the top. And a "nameplate" with happy birthday on the middle layer.

 


My idea is to do the top layer in purple swirled roses.

 

 

 

 

Middle layer in white icing with tiny purple dots (no quilting)

 

 

Bottom layer purple ruffles ombre style (I know this pic is of fondant but mine with be smaller buttercream ruffles)

 

 

 

Do you think that this will be too busy?  I am doing the ruffle tier no matter what.  Any suggestions on the other tiers?  Or do you think that this will be ok?

Awesome.  Thanks!  My daughter is turning 6 and wanted a Sofia the First party.  Originally, she chose a cake from a member here and I was going to have someone do it but she said she didn't love it and wanted something totally different and not so baby.  So, Im keeping with the purple of Sofia but not doing any "baby" princess stuff.  LOL She's 6 going on 16. Yikes.
