i would do a white buttercram and then wither in buttercream or fondant ( whatever their taste is do one the bottom narrow black pin stripes with slightly thicker lime and fuschia ones on the top tier maybe do different size circle in each of the colrs and the do a large blac fondant bow as the topper, fun yet classy!

I LOVE those colors together! What is the theme of the shower, do you know yet? I would try to match that. That said, my first instinct was zebra stripes! (of course, I just made one so it's on my brain right now).

Another totally different direction could be to make a damask pattern; white cake with black damask and fushia flowers with lime leaves, or even fuschia icing with black damask and white, lime and black accents, (or vice versa; lime, with bl. damask, etc.). And if you really wanted to kick it up you could maybe use black icing and do the damask with lime or fuschia. I just hate to use that much black icing; everyone will scrape it off because of the mess it makes of your lips and teeth!

I have no idea if that was any help or not, but since no-one else had answered yet I thought I'd throw it out there.

How about something like this:

with lime green flowers? Fresh or silk? Or add a thinner lime green ribbon with the black and pink, and then make a monogram topper?

I just have always liked this cake...

i'm picturng something modern and fun. black piping and damask work is so in now... you should try searching for pictures with those elements.
if i had the time, i would search the gallery with you but i'm just doing a quick Cake Central "drive-by" right now and have no time. icon_cool.gif

I would do a white cake, black ribbon at the bottom and fushia and lime green gerbera daisies. I think that would really pop.

Just saw this cake in another thread that seems to incorporate the colours you are using - minus the Gerberas (sp?).

Might help with some ideas
