So we have a customer who loves the brightest colors possible. When she ordered easter cupcakes she said the brighter the better. Well now she ordered a small cake for her mothers 80th birthday and she wants bright roses i just cant think of a color for my frosting that wont make this look like an art project gone bad. So far i have her roses done they are electric pink fushcia and electric purple icon_surprised.gif So lost icon_cry.gif

I'd say either white (with maybe a little pearl luster dust) or a paler shade of one of one of the colors you used for the roses. Or just go crazy and make it burnt orange, kind of like those cakes from India. Maybe with a little gold stenciling on it.

White would really make the flowers pop and be very classy.

Lime green or bright yellow would be awesome but I think of that more for a young girl.

Someone posted this website a while back & I refer to it ALL the time to help coordinate colors! Maybe it will help you too.

There are tabs at the bottom & top that will allow you play with the hues, brightness, all kinds of things. Good luck! icon_smile.gif
