This is one of my favorite cakes ever! It reminds me of a vintage wedding dress...oddly that's what we were going for! Ha! I would imagine the ribbon around the top tier would go around the bust line, and the bow would wrap around the waist. I just love it! I love the height, the texture on the bottom half. I love the contrast between and white and the ivory and I love the broach on the ivory bow. It turned out perfect. Enjoy!
