I'm making a floral gumpaste topper and the bride wants it to be totally white...white flowers, white leaves and white stems. How can I do that without it looking ugly? I did point out to her that flowers are never totally white and that it won't be very natural-looking, but she said the groom is adamant about wanting a totally white wedding. I can't even find any pictures of an all-white gumpaste arrangement...I can find white flowers with greenery but not with white greenery.

What if you used some luster dust to make the flowers stand out from the leaves and such? I would focus on textures and luster dust maybe to help with that. Good luck!

Well if the cake is all white it may look fine. I don't know if I have seen it like that myself, but I think like I said if the cake is entirely other colors. It will look good.

Can you just do flowers? Like white roses. There was a cake the other day on recent cakes added and it was all white with white roses....Very pretty.
