My new client wants to make sure her cake doesn't look "juvenile"

She and I talked and she is going for a 9in round that says "Happy 30th Anniversary @@@ and ***" The sides have impression mat with pearls at the intersections, and the top lavendar and white (pearlized) roses and buds with greenery.

My question....how does a rose spray look juvenile? Is it the arrangement? The colors? She gave me permission to alter it if it starts to look juvenile, she specifically wants something with a "sophisticated" look.

Anybody have any perspective on this?

maybe she was using 'juvenile' to replace 'unprofessional'??? Not that any of your stuff would look like that, but maybe that's what she meant.

Because I too don't know how a rose spray would look juvenile.

perhaps she meant roses that look truer to life than the fabric style rolled roses.

She's probably thinking of how a birthday cake with the icing roses on it looks, and is worried that it will look like a little kid's cake. I wouldn't worry about it too much. With what you're describing it won't look too young.
