I need your help fellow bee’s.
My Fi and I have narrowed it down to a few types of cakes we would like. The problem is: What should it look like on the outside?
Our theme isn’t really a theme but our colours are teal (a bit more blue than green), silver, black and white. We have a lot of table diamonds all over the place and we’re thinking maybe something diamondlike on the cake?
(the diamond look)
(Plain and simple, just a few delicate flowers in the right colour)
(FI liked this one best because it was a bit different, but i just don’t know)
(square version of the diamond one, without bows and orange flowers).
(or this one in white chocolate with silver sugar pearls)
I do love my polka dots.

I voted for the first one based on the “diamond” sort of theme, and I usually prefer round cakes.

I like the first one (round with diamond pattern) the best but I would maybe look at adding teal or silver (depending on if you want the pop of color or not) to the bottom of each tier like in the square version.

the option[#3] your FI likes could be nice, and you can always swap out the flowers for something more diamond-like if that’s your preference.
you seem to be leaning toward #5. Is there anyway to compromise the two and come up with something else?
I personally like a simple cake, but that’s my personal preference. 🙂

@EleanorRigby: I think this will be the one but without the crisscross pattern. Just need to be persuaded that it’s the right one, I truly can never make up my mind.
Thanks for your input.

I like option number 3, but probably because it was the picture I showed our baker. Here’s how it turned out:
Edit: Sorry it ended up so huge! I just wanted to show another “version” of the cake your FI likes.

@EvaBostonTerrier: Ohh pretty. This is something like ours will look if we choose this option:)
I’ll borrow your picture to bring to our baker for inspiration if you don’t mind.

I love the diamond one, it is very simple yet absolutely stunning 🙂 I do tend to lean towards a round cake as well…just something about the word to me implies it should be round. Also this will pull together your ‘diamond theme’ or atleast make it cohesive. Best of luck! 🙂

I love the first three… you could always swap out flowers for a pretty diamond topper like this (but obviously not starfish-I’m having a beach wedding!):

I think if you could have #4 done in rounds instead of square tiers, it would look amazing.
