I waffled on going "light" pink for the #1. I went with bright pink because I was worried about it getting lost. Hindsight, I'm thinking, I should have stuck with light pink to match the icing. I was aiming at a fun look, but not totally juevenille. This was for my neice. My sister is not yet ready to jump into the Elmo/Dora themed bday parties just yet. Wait till next year. icon_wink.gif In your opinion, what color do you think I should do the #1 next time? I had another request for this cake. (in case the link doesn't work, it's the ice cream cone cake in my photos.) Thanks.

I like the vibrant pink. It would have been to "matchy, matchy" if it was the same color as the frosting. I like the way it stands out. Nice cake.

I like the contrast also, but I think the pale pink almost vanishes into the background. In my opinion it could have been a little more vibrant but not the same color as the number.

I really like the color but if you want to do something more fun you could do some dots of different colors on it or little ones confetti like, or lines, or stars, well, you get the idea, but you did a great job on this "one", get it? hahaha icon_lol.gif
