Hello Everyone !! Okay I need some assistance ASAP. I have an upcoming wedding cake order and the bride loves the contrasting look you see here. How would you suggest i could come up with this color. The bride does not want fondant, but a traditional buttercream cake with a royal icing lace design. I have 3 weeks to figure this out !! Im stuck

idk -- first one could be a pinky beige or a pale mauve or wisteria color the second one looks like dark ivory or a dusty peach or?


the first one is probably a stencil applied onto fondant but you could do that by making a stencil and mark your cake with it then pipe over smooth crusted buttercream --


the second one could be piped or cut out on one of those cricket/silhouette machines and over piped or could be real thin fondant or sugar veil over piped -- you can get there with buttercream or royal too

AI would say that Wilton Ivory would get you to the second cake colour. Its almost caramel but the Ivory will work if you use enough of it. And for the top cake, start with Ivory and add a pink colour. Starting out with Ivory and then adding regular colours usually give more "vintage" tones.
