What about just going with plain white frosted cake and then doing sugared fruits or edible flowers to decorate? or even fresh, organic, pesticide-free ones? Then she doesn’t have to ‘decorate’ the cake necessarkly, just stick some pretty stuff on it

Well don’t go onto Martha Stewarts website for inspiration!  I looked at them and they were all beautiful but I think they may be difficult to pull off, without stress that is.  You could always have her do a 3 or 4 tear cake with white fondant and just put some fresh flowers in the reds and oranges.  That would be so stress free and would look amazing!

Definately. Easiest thing to do it make cakes in different sizes, large to small, round or square, and stack them for tiers.  You’ll need to use wooden dowels to put through the layers for stability if it’s a large cake.  Then frost it plain white. or add some orange food coloring to vanilla frosting for an orange cake. Add fresh flowers, to stick out between each layer and then a bunch on the top.  Simple simple simple ๐Ÿ™‚

Something like this sound be pretty easy – you can use buttercream or fondant icing and two different widths of ribbon.

You may want to ask her whether she would prefer an easy design.  Some bakers get really bored with ones that don’t require a lot of creativity.  Maybe the two of you can sit down together and talk about what you like vs. what her skill and comfort levels will allow…

Thanks, ccranetobe…so do you ๐Ÿ™‚

 My cake is very simple. Where the bling is in the pics I will DIY some edging for it. I will take some orange ribbon and attach a narrower red in the middle of it and then add rhinestones in the middle of the two ribbons. I will use it to wrap around the edges of each tier. I am also DIYing my own monograms for the top. I will only have 3 tiers and the middle one will be sideways.

Here it is

Alot of the wedding cakes you see on marthastewart.com are actually done with stencils.  You can buy the stencils for most of her cakes at http://www.designerstrencils.com and they do not look too hard to use.  Here is a website that shows how it is done…  http://cakecentral.com/articles/138/how-to-stencil-on-a-fondant-covered-cake-video  Stencils are definitely am easy way to get a beautiful cake with lots of detail, anything like these are stenciled cakes and you can then have them done in any colors you want
