I was thinking we could adorn the cake with pretty herbs or delicate flowers, but I just remembered I bought these swarvoski birds for him when we first started dating:
Do you think these would be a good baklava cake topper? Or greenery? I didn’t want any cake topper originally…but these birds are sentimental
That. Looks. Amazing! *drools*
This is freaking brilliant! I love baklava! I was going to suggest serving it with ice cream, but I see that you’ve already thought of that too! You should definitely do it!
I think @soontobeMrsBoo is talking about gulab jamun (Indian) or Melomakarona (Greek).

I would also go with something citrusy – like lemon bars, or any number of these: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/photos/top-lemon-desserts.html
Citrus goes well with honey (in my opinnion). I *would* offer something more than just ice cream for those who don’t like baklava. You could even make a dessert table using the baklava tiered cake as the centerpiece – surrounding it with whatever you enjoy, that way you wouldn’t have to worry about flavors clashing as much.
Love the idea……not to be the debbie downer here :(……..conceptually might be better than reality. Baklava is cooked pre-cut or semi cut with scores in the top. Because of its sticky nature and how finicky Phyllo dough is, cutting the cake may be messy and you probably won’t get clean cake slices unless its baked pre-cut.
I am one of those weirdos that would not eat it- but it seems like I would be in the minority.
OMG I WANT SOME!
