AOk so I am making my cousins wedding cake this June. I've made plenty of your run of the mill birthday cakes, but only one wedding cake, which was covered in wavy butter cream. [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2931824/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

AAnyways, they kindof just said they would go with whatever decoration I wanted but that they like the cake in this picture [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2931825/width/200/height/400[/IMG] And their boquets look like this[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2931826/width/200/height/400[/IMG] (I hope I can post that since its not cake) My question is, how would I go about making these flowers? And should I do them in purple or orange? How do I incorporate both colors without it looking halloweeny. And since the boquet has roses, should I do the same concept of the cake but with roses? What would you do?

Hi, by the way I love your wedding cake, I found a pic that has similar colors just to give you and idea how you could blend the colors.  I also found some tutorials on this site for making flowers,  and you tube has lots of them.

 

But I am sure by the looks of your first wedding cake what ever you decide it will be beautiful.

Hi.   I found this on Google from ProjectWedding.  Scroll to the bouquets.  It shows roses in your picture colors with deep purple as an accent.  Maybe this can help with some ideas.  I personally like roses in all colors, but that's me.

Hi, I love your wedding cake by the way.  I was trying to post earlier and couldn't get smaller pic of a wedding cake I found that was similar to your colors.  Thank God for moderators,lol.

 

To incorporate the colors you could look for peach and plum colors to transition the orange and purple.

And I agree with JWinslow, I love roses.

 

From the looks of your cake, what ever you come up with I'm sure it will be beautiful.

Hi, just a thought maybe you could do all the flower/roses in the peach/apricot colour and only use the purple as a ribbon band around the bottom of each or every other cake. Hthicon_smile.gif

Do they like the cake style or the colour? Maybe you are racking your brain for no reason if you sit down with them and tell them the peach would look awesome substituted for the purple in the pic. You might want to ask them if they meant that they wanted that colour peach in there

AThey are sending a swatch of their bridesmaid dresses which I guess is the color they want for the cake.
