Pretty Pink Dots Cake is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from It needs a topper of some sort, maybe a big flowy bow and then it needs a ribbon around the bottom. I would make the bow and the ribbon in a slight contrasting color. I also would put it on a fondant covered cake board with a ribbon on the cake board to match the cake and a pretty tulle around the cake board as well. I do that a lot with my cake boards. You can see those at LA Cups & Cakes on Facebook. To me, this is a very plain looking cake that would be very easy to do, but it needs a little sprucing up.
