Customer wants Grey colored icing and black roses... - Page 2

The big deal is that grey food is seriously unappealing. We eat with our eyes first.

I reckon that it could potentially look really stunning, maybe try & keep the grey a lighter "dove grey" type shade. You have given her your professional opinion that you don't think the colours will work so she can't say she wasn't warned LOL!

I've made some cakes in gray and no one had a problem eating them. I think it is a theme that could be done well.

In the end, if the customer doesn't want to change their mind, you either do what they want or you pass on the cake.

Here's a cake that's all dark grey but still looks stunning:

Granted, it's done in fondant. Black roses on it instead of grey would probably make it look a little more goth, but I don't think it would look like it belonged at a funeral.

You could use a black icing plug in your pastry bag to prevent the black color from mixing with the gray.



Sorry to interject, but what is an icing plug if you dont mind?
