Okay, I have a family member who is getting married again. She is wanting a round cake that is traditional, . That's all she will tell me.
Her colors are going to be a dark purple, butter yellow, burnt orange....it's kinda fall colors. I don't want to do ruffles and swags with doves, but I do want to do something she would like.
So...anyone have any ideas for a "traditional" cake with a slightly mordern twist?
Anything to get the ball rolling would be great...Thanks
You know, I THINK in one of the Wilton Yearbooks from the 80's there actually was a fall themed "traditional" cake. I remember because I liked the colors. Maybe 1984? Don't know if you can find any info on it online or not, though.
Maybe something with leaves in the yellow and orange with some purple berries on some little twigs/branches.
How about traditional white cake, lemon curd filling, white icing, gold scrollwork and purple "jewels" on the sides?
How about an ivory colored cake with purple brush embroidery on alternating tiers, on the other tiers do a diamond pattern with dragees at the corners, I know they come in a variety of colors now so you could do another shade of purple. you can tie the yellow and orange in with some flowers on the top and then just throw a few tiny purple flowers in to tie it all together?
Oh wow, I like Stephaniescakenj's suggestion, I'd go with that one!
