I have an upcoming bridal shower cake and the bride is very classic but not a frilly girl by any means I have a really neat idea in mind but would like to have the BC colored that nice champagne color as it would make a beautiful backdrop to my decor. Any ideas or combinations you use to get this color. I am not look for a bold color by any means. Thank you for your time in advance
I guess I could be confusing people with my color description. I am looking for a blushy beige color very light. I don't know how to describe it sorry Hoping someone has some ideas.
Have you tried a copper or skin tone color with a little yellow?
i would think ivory with copper should nail it!
I will try those suggestions out. Thank you for taking the time to suggest these combinations.
If you are making Swiss Merengue Buttercream (SMBC), there is one in a Martha Stewart Living Magazine (around Thanksgiving) that uses BROWN sugar when you warm the egg whites. It may be on the MS web site. It's fairly simple, delicious and it comes out a nice pale ivory color depending on whether you use light or dark brown sugar. I'll see if I can find pictures with something I've used it on.
OK - editing 'cause I found one. I used it on the little mini-muffins in the bottom-left corner.
The recipe is posted on the MS web site. They use dark brown sugar and it's a bit darker than mine.
