I am finishing my Wilton Course 3 next week, and like a good student, I have made my 40 plus fondant roses. (I could probably do it with my eyes close now!) The cake we are supposed to do is two tier white with the roses cascading down. My roses are various shades of coral (custom color), and the leaves are Wilton juniper green. Any suggestions for other flowers to mix in, or for a different base color for the cake other than white fondant? I really don't like doing "cookie cutter" cakes where everyone takes home the exact same thing. However, I seem to have the cake-maker's version of writer's block. Thanks for your suggestions.

How about adding some pale yellow and light blue flowers with coral, yellow and light blue fondant accents. You don't have to make more flowers if you don't want to, stick some yellow and blue curliques throughout. I hope this gives you sme inspiration.

Besides the accents on the sides (I'm thinking coral, light blue and pale yellow circles) maybe you could do a fondant ribbon at the bottom of each tier; one tier with a light blue ribbon and the other with yellow, since all the flowers are coral.
