I have an order for a wedding shower cake....2 tier....30 people. Color scheme Royal Blue, Kelly Green and electric pink. They would like to incorporate the saying " Mega said Yes" The idea of the lady ordering was one tier blue, one green with the Mega said Yes somewhere on the cake done in the pink. I am BLANK......It sound like a horribly ugly cake so any, and I mean any help you can give me would be FANTASTIC icon_smile.gif

Blue green and pink go together beautifully if you keep it in the same color family. A deep rather than electric pink would go well. I like the idea of the 2 different colored tiers and pink writing and accents.

The giant cupcake cake in my images uses those three colors but all in the electric family.

HTH somewhat.

I agree with Herekittykitty, see if a deeper pink instead of electric pink will work for her. Then maybe both tiers in pink, with "Mega Said Yes" written on the side of the top tier in the same shade of pink so it doesn't jump out at you. Then do blue borders and decorate it with blue and pink flowers (keep the greenery on them) and there you have all 3 colors. Or see if she'll go with the tiers being white, with "Mega Said Yes" written on the side of the top tier in white and decorated with pink and green dots or, scrolls with blue borders. Frame out the words like an over plaque.

You can definitely make green, blue and pink work together...I agree, just keep them the same level of intensity basically.

I think it would be fun to have the word "YES!" sticking out of the top tier on wires.

Some color-combo examples for inspiration:

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1683609.html (imagine this without the middle tier, and a pink sash rather than white -- or white sash with pink lettering)
http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1676597.html (very simple...imagine with the flowers on top in pink)
