Ok so my friend wants the cake pictured below. But she only wants it 1 tier. So she has left it up to me to decide what colour icing etc but im not sure which would look best, do i do the cake yellow with darker yellow dots, purple with darker purple dots or shouldi do yellow icing with purple dots? Any opinions appreciated thanks.

It depends on if I thought the purple color would behave for me. I like the purple best but would be worried the color would change.

Purples tend to change color, especially in the sun. I made a wedding cake once with purple flowers. During the delivery, one side of the cake was in the sun (shining thru the window in my suv) and when I arrived at the venue, the flowers had turned blue! Luckily the bride thought it was pretty, but I still turned the blue side to the back so it wasn't too noticeable.

because purple is one of "those"colours unfortunately--just not very user friendly!! look up some threads on the issues of purple to get a feel for what brand you might like to try out/have access too!!
best of luck x

You don't have to worry if you use Chefmaster No-fade purple. They also have a no-fade pink.
