Criss-Cross Ribbons on Square Tiers

Laura and Chris were married in late July, 2011, and Kristen and her team at Dessert Works produced this beautiful cake for them!

The cake is frosted in our signature Vanilla Buttercream frosting (see how smooth?), with thicker fabric ribbons along the base of each tier, and thick and thin strands criss-crossing along the sides. 

We've seen this look on round tiers before, and think it translates beautifully to the square, slightly offset tiers!  Some conservative "champagne dot" bubbles were piped on (also in buttercream), and fresh flowers were placed by the florist at the Saphire Estate in Sharon, MA to complete the look.

Stunning, no??  Tell us what you think!!


  1. Love the ribbon work! Very unique. What are the sizes of each square tier?

  2. Thanks for your comment! Sizes were 14", 11", 8" and 5" to keep everything proportional. The tiers were also slightly offset as you can see (corners not perfectly aligned) for added visual interest.

    Keep reading!


Thank you for commenting! We love to hear what you think of our creations!
