AI've got a cake to make using the 3 colours in the picture. Pink and purple are a must for the decs but do I cover the cake with the jade green or white fondant? I'm happy that the 3 colours go together, just don't know if covering in jade will be too much. Opinions please

AIs there any theme other than the colors? What is the occasion?

AI think it will be too much. If you don't want plain white, you could go with a very light shade of any of them as a background.

The cake would be beautiful colored jade and incorporate the pink and purple.

The jade background give so much more sophistication to the pink and purple combo. A white background with the pink and purple will be far more common and less rich in feel.

White always makes bright colours look busier, I would go with a very light soft jade.

AIts a birthday cake. I'll stick with my original idea then. Wasn't sure if it would be too much! See this is what I like about this forum. Always guided in the right direction., Thanks :)
