Making a 2 tiered cake.  Bottom will be covered with dark chocolate ganache so I thought of having the top tier white to create the black & white effect.

 

My problem is I'm making purple (not lavender) large flowers.

 

My question to you all is this, Do you see that happening or should I change it?  And What color would you use?

 

The dark chocolate ganache is a must and the flowers are already made.  I can change the top tier to any color I want.

 

TIA

ACan you stage the colours so deep purple/lavender/ivory petals so for exampke start really deep purple flowers at the bittom with the dark choc ganache and as you move upwards to the white choc do deeper petals on the outside moving to lighter and lighter. It might make the colours seem less harsh?

Yikes!  Didn't think of that.  My flowers are almost 1 piece.  What do you thing if I have petals falling or laying on the cake.

 

Here is the kind of flowers I made.  The darker ones.

Sorry Embles, that is not my cake.  Wish it were.  Its beautiful.  The flowers are already made, Going to try and add more layers to break up the dark color.

 

Maybe add a ruffle of lavender and off white between the 2 tiers. What do you think?
