AZ is some new fangled cake master robot software artist. Her work is not of mere mortals hands. <sigh>

SPCOhio, isn't that the truth!  She does such beautiful work.  I'd love to learn from her!

I'm feeling like Garth & Wayne in 'Wayne's World'....when they met Alice Cooper.:D

EllaVanilla I look forward to seeing your masterpiece.  You're going to do great.

Oh geez guys, there are wayyyyyyyy more talented people out there than me! But thank you, I appreciate it! Shoot, when is PBS (cause they're the only ones who would do it right!!) going to do a series that visits Peggy Porschen's and Cake Opera's shops? Or does a three (or four or five) hour documentary on Margaret Braun? That would be good television!

Older thread, but AZ if you have a moment I have a quick question. Using your chart, I see a 5 tier cake in the towery section. My client really wants 5 tiers, she's flexible but I'd like to give her what she wants since it's possible. Anyway, you say it depends on the designs Do you have any suggestions to making the cake look "right". Things that I should or shouldn't do? It's one of those super hero cakes but we are mixing it up with star wars

Well, I tend not to go heavy on details that stick out too much. Let me grab some examples to show you.

Oh well...I guess I posted them already on the front page. 

 

Ok, so most of the details should really be flat where possible, maybe only a few that are really large and stick out from the cake, otherwise, with the lack of "shelves" (the ledges of the tiers under each one), details that stick out will tend to look a little funny. In my examples, you see there aren't any details that stick out much. I hope that makes sense.

 

So, painted space scene on a couple or few of the cakes, fading into whatever background you'd use for the superheroes? Cut out planets, maybe with slight puffiness underneath them for a bit of texture, and maybe one or two round planets....

 

A topper is definitely ok, maybe make it where part of the topper hangs down even, extending past the top of the top tier. (Hope THAT makes sense)

 

I'll keep thinking @morganchampagne

AZCouture, the cake with the writing on is stunning!
Sorry to butt in on a thread I'm no use to but I just had to tell you how much I love that cake.
It's so beautiful.

Oh, dont trouble yourself!! Youve been quite helpful already! I just needed some general tips, since ive never dealt with that exact spacing before! I really appreciate it!!

Missed that, sorry. The 7 tier one? That was a 10". I need another order like this, and soon! icon_biggrin.gif I'm itching for a tall cake.
