Maybe I am the one with no taste (I have been told that before; I get a little carried away with the Christmas decorating). When people see this cake, will they think, "OMG! What was that baker thinking!" ?
It is to be a "cute" (MOB's word) groom's cake being served at the rehersal dinner. His family is arranging the dinner, and the MOB is arranging the groom's cake.
It is to be an 11x15 sheet. Hot pink or magenta (she has described hot pink, but is using the words interchangeably) and burnt orange camoflouge cake with a pink Browning symbol on top. Since it is his cake, I got her to switch it to the burnt orange Browning symbol, but she kept saying cute. She wants cute. I just can't get past these colors. And at the last minute she says, "oh yeah, and some black."
I even suggested she bring some swatches just so I get this right. She said whatever will be fine. Head shaking. Is this a common color combo, and I am just behind?
Well around here pink and orange makes me think of Dunkin Donuts. lol
I wonder why they want a pink groom's cake though...I'm thinking it's some sort of inside family joke.
I don't mind pink and orange together...but then again I do love my Dunkin Donut's coffee.
Hot pink and orange was a hot bedding combo a few years ago. I have seen magenta and burnt orange done well but the magenta was a very deep tone. You might consider putting the combos together for the MOB and send to her if possible. The extra step may save you in headaches down the road.
It may be the wedding colors...hot pink and orange are very popular right now....
It's hard to make a cake for someone when they have ideas that sound strange to you. I once had to make a "white trash" cake for someone's birthday. It ended up being really cute when I finally came up with a design plan.
Actually, it's the new thing to do girl colors with the camoflage.
best thing to do is find a picture to make sure you're on the same page with whoever is ordering.
i'm thinking something like this: http://a4.l3-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/84/51f6df286d4c72e7ed0792e837d60810/l.jpg
