One cake, with slightly different flowers, and two completely different photo backgrounds.

The colors on the cake & flowers really change with the different backgrounds, and that surprised me!

The whole color use process is still somewhat of a mystery some days.

Yeah, I found out about the custom color balance settings on my camera and it changed my life :)

well, no matter how much I keep learning, it just leads me to something more................

it's possible that my brain is just too full.  I'll look into the 'custom color balance' settings.  Thanks Kara.

PRETTY cake, MB!  Well done in both photos.

Thanks @Apti ‍, those were my first wired daisies and the hardest flower to make so far.  I've lot's of room for future improvement.

I may just stick to the white-gray type of background to keep it easier for my photos.  I don't think that I have the same skills that a pro like Kara has.   Sometimes it's best to know and understand your limits and be happy with yourself.  ps: I loved the cupcakes that you posted on the other thread.
