Met with a bride who is doing her colors in lemon/navy blue. Sounds really pretty. Her centerpieces will be lemons as well as other decorations. Does anyone have any photos of lemons or lime on a cake? I was thinking of putting actual lemons on the corners or even raise each tier up a bit and stick them in the space.

I don't know about whole lemons... but I can picture incorporating lemon slices. As in a nice whole circle cut of lemon. Make a fresh cut, pat dry with a paper towel, then sprinkle some white or even a light coating of blue granular sugar on it. Randomly place them on the cake like flowers with like some blueberries to give it a navy color and feel.

Painting with fruit sound neat. Anyway, that's my first idea. icon_smile.gif

Oh and I like the idea also of seperating the tiers and putting lemons in between.

Thanks for posting the links guys! djs-I saw that one which is very cool. I have found a couple with pears on the cake which is stunning but very few using the whole lemon.
