I’ve made a cake similar to this (it’s super easy and don’t let any baker tell you otherwise! Lol)

I agree that there should be some definition between the tiers, otherwise it’s just a big rosette blob. A lovely blob, but still.. Nothing stands out, you know?

I would personally probably seperate all the tiers with a 1 inch styrofoam “fake tier” wrapped in a colored ribbon or a blingy band. The tiers would sit on top of this and it would just give the rosettes some seperation.

Or even if you like the way it is, you could always do a couple of the rosettes in a bold colour, just to give it a bit more visual interest.

If you like ombre, you could also gently color each layer with a different color to define the layers.

I like it as is! But i’m probably biased as it’s similar to my cake lol

I was going to suggest a ribbon between the tiers or ombre like the first two posters!  Beautiful..

What about a cake topper? Like a rhinestone monogram maybe?

I think it is beautiful as is. I do like the idea of deepening the color of the frosting as you go down the cake.

you could also do a plain layer in the middle

I love it–you have fab. taste! But I do think there should be a little something extra. Ombré would be stunning! Or, i think adding a plain, or different texture (like a pearled or quilted effect) in between would look really pretty too. I’ve also seen them put individual silver beads/crystals in the center of each rosette.

@FortiesFlare:  How do they make that? Is it all with a special tip?

 

@julies1949:  love those!

 

 

@gcassioppi:  I agree that really cool, colorful cake topper would look great!
