Requested to have black fondant coating and letters to be fucsia. The other cupcakes has to be colorful and for decoration asked words like joy,happy....

If it is to be black fondant with fuschia, then I would do other bold colors like yellow, teal, green, purple and even some white. Good luck! HTH!

monbebe, here's a little secret. It's a website that if you have no idea of how to use color, comes really handy. I'm a graphic designer and even I go there to check out how colors look together. It's actually our color wheel, but in digital form.

Go to:
http://colorschemedesigner.com/

When you get there you'll see a wheel. There's a dark dot on that wheel. Move it around to find your primary color, as in fuchsia. Get as close as you want or can.

On the top, you'll see variations of that color. That's the monochromatic scheme. Same color, different hues.

Now, click on Complement on the top, and you'll see that green shows up. If you try to get other shades of green (with the little dot that's over green), you'll see that it starts getting towards the purples.

Click on Triad on top and you'll get three colors. Now you'll be able to move around the two little white circles, to get other combinations.

And so on...you could make screenshots of the color combinations if you want to, to refer to them.

Good luck. At the very least, it's a nice thing to play with.

Oh, and if you want softer colors (maybe for another job?) go to the bottom where you can click on Adjust Scheme and move the black circle around the square till you find your perfect colors!
