HI. I haven't made many cakes. Only some for my kids' parties. I'm making a small birthday cake for a friend, and it needs to incorporate pink and green. But, I don't want it looking like a baby's nursery...you know?

I'm thinking of adding a bit of orange or something to make it look sophisticated and adult. Any ideas?

What about some black or pearl white? Pink and green are my favorite colors!

You can look in the galleries under pink or green and I'm sure there will be a few cakes in there that will spark some ideas. icon_smile.gif
You could do dots and cut out circles or the cut out squares. (the circles/squares are cut then a smaller cutter is used in the middle.)

Those are my company colors! You could do a green cake and pink piping/scroll work.
Then paint some pearl dust over the piping. Just an idea.

my thoughts are that the more vivid the colors, the better! Pastels would be what might make it look "kiddish". Also, go for symmetry, not a whimsical design. I agree with the poster who said to add black or white. I would definitely add black. It would look great!

Thanks for the ideas.

I'm thinking of doing paisley or perhaps make the fondant marbled. I'm not sure.

I'll post pics when I'm done.
