I have a big birthday cupcake order next week. The lady who ordered it told me the colors that she will be decorating with, but left it up to me to decide the colors for the frosting, etc.
I will be making half of the cupcakes chocolate and the other half lemon. The icing will be cream cheese and on top will be monograms- some will be circles with a "30", some will be circles with an "A" and the rest will be flowers.
THe cake for the top of the cupcake tower will be chocolate fondant with a big 30 monogram. I need ideas on the color scheme of the big monogram, the icing and the cupcake monograms and flowers.
The colors she will be using are: (I can choose any combination and I don't have to use all of them)
lime green
fushia pink

I know that those are some bright colors, and I am having a hard time figuring out which go best together and what would tie in best with the chocolate fondant.
If you have any ideas, I'd LOVE to hear them!! THanks!!

I personally love lime green and hot pink together....totally cute.

Pink and brown/chocolate are also a popular combination, so maybe use a pink monogram on the chocolate fondant

Chocolate with pink and lime are really pretty together.
