I kind of like the idea of this cake (as far as the colors go), although this particular one looks a little crooked (I mean I know the tiers are supposed to be angled but I think it looks less than professionally done) You could definitely tone it down a bit with all the little decorations: http://pinterest.com/pin/148548487679073995/ 

ETA: I think this is what they were going for lol: http://pinterest.com/pin/116952921542808035/

This one is really cute! http://images.pinkcakebox.com/cake1261.jpg

Maybe these are still too gaudy for what you’re looking for!

Something more like this? http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Mj4gTxN4knw/TbNw3qPbcqI/AAAAAAAAAMM/vzrhjxj9wG4/s640/purple-wedding-cakes.jpg

@cajungirl81:  4 is not a particular flavor, just a baking technique with different colored, cut, and layered cakes. Hope this helps! Good luck!

here’s another I love, simple design with beautiful floral embellishment:

You could always try looking up more venetian style/themed cakes and maybe just change the colors to yours. I feel like they won’t be as busy? But maybe I’m wrong.

If you’re curious about the slanty layers- they are an illusion.  First the cake is cut at the angle. Then in the center, a circle is carved out the same size as the next layer.  The carved area is done so that it is flat.  When they next layer is put on, it sits “in” the hole and is actually sitting completely level.  You think its slanted because the cake around it is.

What about a more baroque-inspired cake? Like one of these, in your colors of course.
