Awaiting the arrival of a princess!

This cake was for a dear friends baby shower. The invitation was purple, black, and cream and had a darling crown on it. It was printed on pearlized paper so I pearled the cake to match. I kept wondering if I should add some decoration to the bottom tier but I couldn't think of anything classy enough to stay in keeping with the classiness of the shower so I left it blank. I made the crown out of fondant with sugar pearls. I tried to make it out of gum paste but it was too dry and I kept breaking it. The crystal above it was just hanging from the chandelier above the table. It wasn't part of the cake. :o)
