I have a last minute wedding cake order for Nov.2
The bride wants a 2 tier cake with a different texture on each layer, a bunch of flowers on top with 2 butterflies sticking out of them and she wants the colors to be cream, pink and brown.
I asked her what kind of flowers she wanted and she said to surprise her, her flowers are fuchsia.
So now I have to design a cake with cream, pink, brown and fuchsia, and have no clue what flowers to make?
My biggest speed bump is the colors; I just can't seem to see all those colors working.
I can see pink and brown but not all four?
And what to do about the flowers?
There is a big difference between a ribbon rose and a realistic rose?
I've asked her all I can and I guess she just doesnât know what she wants, but I can't make a cake when I don't know what the customer wants.
Any help?

This is a good cake for you to try. You should do ivory base, then brown and fuchsia.No pink, fuchsia is pink. I personally would make the flowers on top fuchsia and LARGER. You could do scrolls on one tier and swiss dots or something else on the other tier.
Good luck.

That is a nice idea lilyanddayne posted. It would look better if the top tier (round) was looks to be an 8 or 9"er....I suggest a 6".
Those flowers on the top are ribbon roses. That should give you an idea of how different they are from realistic onesicon_smile.gif
