Hey all,
I am in the process of making a two tiered anniversary cake, white with gold rope accents and white roses, calla lilies, and tiny 5 petal flowers. All flowers are tipped in gold. I really would like to do green leaves...but would gold look better? Help....really can't decide.

If the flowers are gold, then I think the gold leaves would be overkill. I would do green leaves .... but maybe add some (and I mean just a HINT) of gold coloring to the green or dust them with gold dust. It will blend the leaves in with the gold theme and reduce the 'brightness' of the green against the white and gold.

Years and years ago, a fellow decorator lady told me that secret of adding a HINT of the other color to the leaves to really make the leaves stand out.
