Hi all icon_smile.gif I have a wedding coming up and the bride is adorable icon_smile.gif the whole process has been a total dream and I am really excited to do it! The only snafu I have is the cake design... I know brides have the say but I am afraid it will look more like a birthday cake than a wedding cake. I am wondering if anyone has any tips on making it more.... I don't know is formal the right word?
She wants the cake to be split down the side (not quite the middle but about a third of the way over and one side to be a rich plum color with turquoise designs and the other side to be turquoise with plum designs... No flowers, and a flat like "divider" like Adolska is known for. icon_smile.gif I just honestly can't envision this ... And none the less as a formal wedding cake... Any suggestions would be most welcome icon_smile.gif thanks so much!!!!

Well you could sell her on the idea that this would make a spectacular grooms cake.

See what your public library has in the way of books--aiming for Martha Stewart or other wedding cake style books. They do a good job of defining what the different styles mean in cake.

No flowers is OK for a formal wedding, but light colours are definitely more formal. What about the same designs in light plum and turquoise on an off white cake?

Also point out that those dark colors will stain teeth, tounge and clothes icon_sad.gif Light colors are always more appitizing (sp?).
Then push the grooms cake idea icon_smile.gif

icon_smile.gif yah... I totally agree... I did mention that but I didn't want to push too much because she seems to have her heart set on it... icon_smile.gif it is her special day.. But I also don't want her to regret that decision when she sees it. It certainly won't be my cup of tea but again it's her special day icon_smile.gif thanks!!!!
