I thought that was quite a price jump for the pearls and figured I could place them myself but after reading how time consuming it is I think I will see if she has any ideas for something similar but more price friendly. If you all have any suggestions I would appreciate them. And I like the cake because it is just beautiful and makes a statement. It just says look at me!

It's awesome that you are being so open to new ideas! There are TONS of ways to 'glam' up a cake while staying in a budget and I am sure you will find the one for you.

Might I recommend pinterest? icon_biggrin.gif

Also, I think when you talk to the baker, letting her know that you understand just how much time and effort she puts into making these cakes would make her day. I am sure she deals with a lot of inflexible and pouty people who just don't get it.

I hope you stick around! You just might find a new hobby icon_lol.gif
