Cake Decoration

I ordered my cake which it'll come 'naked' (all white). The baker could decorate but she said florist usually does it better. My florist will decorate only the TOP. Any suggestion is appreciated.

I read in martha stewart that you can order pre-made cake decorations like gum paste flowers. I considered getting some for my cake as i'm using a friend of a friend who's never done a wedding cake before so i'm not sure of her skill level in making fancy flowers, etc... They're actually inexpensive. Check out this site as a start: http://www.cakesbysam.com/store/index.html

Or you can use ribbon in a darker color - you can tie the ribbon at the base of each tear; you can have different colored ribbons of various widths and texture. Just be sure the ribbons complement the colors of the flowers placed on top.

Or - you can decorate with any sort of chocolate bonbons, truffles, dragees, or any other pretty-looking ready-made candy in the right colors!

These ribbons may not be real ones, but you can borrow the idea and use fabric ribbons for your cake...

Another design that I like - again the ribbon (this time real, I think) plays the main part in this cake's decoration.

How about some ribbons and roses, like this:




If your florist won't poke blooms into the lower tiers, perhaps you can request the flowers and have a friend or family member do it for you? It seems odd that they'll only decorate the top. WTF?



Here's one with just the top decorated:







Here's another one that looks simple enough to copy:
