Would you use silver dragees on an ivory colored cake? It's for a 30th wedding anniversary. The only decorations on the cake will be white calli lillies. I can't find white available near by and need it for Saturday.

you can always make your own white pearls.

I agree with Diane, pearls would look better (to me) than silver on ivory. The color for a 25th anniversary is silver though, so I could understand using it then, but you mention that it is for a 30th.

I would try pearls and if you can't get them, just pipe 'beads' out of bc where you would've put the pearls. When the bc crusts, lightly paint it w/ a mixture of lemon extract and pear dust.

Good luck! thumbs_up.gif

See my avatar to the left?
200 handmade pearls made in two days, but that was pushing it.

I would probably go with gold over silver for an ivory cake personally

I agree, either pearl or gold would be best!
Good luck!

I think silver and ivory are a very modern combination... they are both neutrals and definately you can put them together!

Check out these cakes - I googled silver ivory cake
