Colors: bright turquoise, hot pink, and yellow
Casual/fun "party" reception w/ Oriental touches (paper lanterns, parasols, and fans)
Servings needed: 100
HELP! How do I incorporate this into a cake?
First thing coming to my mind is a "lantern" shaped cake with flowers, fans, parasols, etc adorning it. You could do a couple of tiers, one the lantern etc and make a nice oriental fan for the topper. Wow you have a lot to work with, it could be a really fun cake to make
Maybe you could use this Japanese rock garden as an inspiration: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=69143
Oriental as in Chinese or Japanese? Or just general? If it's Chinese, try to add some red and gold tones or if it's Japanese, try some cranes on the fans.
Red's a no-go. Colors are: hot pink, bright turquoise and yellow.
Not really specific to any Asian country, more of a generic "Far East" kind of thing w/ the paper parasols, paper lanterns, and fans.
Bonsai, Oriental Screen, Kimono, chop sticks, rice bowl, mah jong, black laquer with pearl inserts, lanterns, silk, silk cushions, rice paper, bamboo, oriental shoes (flip flop kind or silk kind) sushi, egg rolls, noodles, kites, dragons, sumo, kabuki masks (kabuki mask with lanterns and parasol?) cherry blossoms......just thought I'd throw out the things that come to my mind when I think of asian theme maybe something will help .
Well shoots on the red. LOL. What about the cranes, though? When I got married I had to fold 1000 of those suckers to teach me patience and the hubby had to fold 1 for good luck. Yup, how fair was that?
Look in my pix at the Gilda's Club cake -- it's not oriental, but I do use large blooms and gumpaste fans -- you could adapt that cake.
