That color combo is certainly unique. And props on the design for the top tier; looks pretty good!

I think it would look great.

@mtbikelover:  is it a single tier with cupcakes? If not, what are the other tiers going to look like?

This seems kind of like what you want in terms of the scrolls and ribbons..I think the hydrangea top might look odd…could you try something like the picture below…with fake flowers?

I love your design ! Only thing I might change is I would prefer the flower on top to be bigger… but other than that, LOVE IT ! Props on making all this yourself !

I see what you are getting at with your picture, and it looks like everything will go well together.  More height with the flowers and making them a bit larger will likely be more proportional.  Just be sure not to make the flowers as big as the top tier like in the picture lawbride88 posted.  It looks great on a stacked cake like that but on top of a cupcake tower, not so great.

Very cute!

Could you pipe the magenta scroll work on wax paper beforehand?
I know sometimes people do that, pop it in the fridge and then just place it directly on the cake… I’m not sure if it would work but it could save you time later on!
Might require a different type of icing. Maybe even colored chocolate?
BUT the nice thing is you could print out a design, layer it under the wax paper, and trace it.

Also, what would it look like with flowers along the bottom, instead of a ribbon band?
Just speculating, I really don’t know. 🙂

I love it!
Especially the colors – so fun!
