I am making a 2-tiered Fondant Cake for a 15yr old girl's Birthday. The mother wants the cake to be fun and fancy. She wants a ladybug on top of a large daisy. Since ladybugs are red/black and Daisies being white/yellow does anyone have a suggestion as to what colours of fondant I should use for each layer of cake? If I use to bright of colours the cake could look carnival like and then be too young for the 15yr old? I just cant see this cake for some reason. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
How about a bright yellow (like the center of your daisy) and/or a spring green color? Or stick with one color and do different graduating shades of it.
Thank you. Yellow as the base, Spring Green on top will look good. Thank you very much. I should be able to buy a spring green colouring for the fondant, Shouldn't I?
I would imagine if you play with a little bit of green and add some bright yellow it might make the shade you want. My guess is that you probably would have to add more yellow than green to get the "spring" color. Good luck! Be sure to post a picture when you're done.
How about these that from CC:
You'll just have to make a few adjustments to either one, but I thought they may help inspire you. HTH
Thank you for the advice - your cakes are beautiful! The pictures are extremely helpful. Do you have a Large Daisy cut out that you used for the second cake picture?
