I have a last minute wedding cake order for Nov.2
The bride wants a 2 tier cake with a different texture on each layer, a bunch of flowers on top with 2 butterflies sticking out of them and she wants the colors to be cream, pink and brown.
I asked her what kind of flowers she wanted and she said to surprise her, her flowers are fuchsia.
So now I have to design a cake with cream, pink, brown and fuchsia, and have no clue what flowers to make?
My biggest speed bump is the colors; I just can't seem to see all those colors working.
I can see pink and brown but not all four?
And what to do about the flowers?
There is a big difference between a ribbon rose and a realistic rose?
I've asked her all I can and I guess she just doesnât know what she wants, but I can't make a cake when I don't know what the customer wants.
This is a good cake for you to try. You should do ivory base, then brown and fuchsia.No pink, fuchsia is pink. I personally would make the flowers on top fuchsia and LARGER. You could do scrolls on one tier and swiss dots or something else on the other tier.
That is a nice idea lilyanddayne posted. It would look better if the top tier (round) was smaller....it looks to be an 8 or 9"er....I suggest a 6".
Those flowers on the top are ribbon roses. That should give you an idea of how different they are from realistic ones
