AI'm working on a wedding cake for this weekend. Attached is the invite. I want to replicate the invite on the bottom tier. It doesn't have to be exactly like the invite...they like swirls. So I thought about stenciling purple swirls with royal. Then doing a random pattern over that in blue. Or sponge paint on some color, but I'm not sure that would show up.

I just don't want it to fade into the black.

Pretty sure royal is my best bet....any thoughts?[ATTACHMENT=1916]1410203954271.jpg (3,454k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]

AI guess replicate is the wrong word if I'm possibly going to change it. Lol.

Also this is for a friend who's given me carte blanche on the design, so of course I wait til the week of....

I had a neon splatter cake that I did last week. and I used white chocolate melts (for the taste sounded so much better than royal) and added americolor to it. It did make the chocolate seize a little bit but I added just enough Crisco to make it smooth and it worked perfectly! It even hardened back up so it wouldn't smudge.  The colors were very vibrant!
