Hi! I know I can count on ya'll for some good ideas.....I have a request for a shoe box cake with a shoe beside it....the shoe is a Manolo Blahnik and it's a neutral color. The problem I'm having is she wants to incorporate salmon pink and apple green and I can't think of where to put those's not really the colors that would be on the box. She also want cream cheese butter cream. I thought about using some fondant on one side of the cake and painting it green and pink so it looks like gift wrap partially ripped off the cake but this sounds like it would be hard and she would end up with some fondant.

Any other ideas??

Hi, if the shoe is a nuetral colour, what you can do is, cover the box with the same colour or salmon pink or green. Then do stipes or dots or some accents with the two remaining colour. Here is an example. In this one, there are three colours which goes well together.

Also you can put some tissues underneath the lid like in this photo,
