Met with a bride who is doing her colors in lemon/navy blue. Sounds really pretty. Her centerpieces will be lemons as well as other decorations. Does anyone have any photos of lemons or lime on a cake? I was thinking of putting actual lemons on the corners or even raise each tier up a bit and stick them in the space.
I don't know about whole lemons... but I can picture incorporating lemon slices. As in a nice whole circle cut of lemon. Make a fresh cut, pat dry with a paper towel, then sprinkle some white or even a light coating of blue granular sugar on it. Randomly place them on the cake like flowers with like some blueberries to give it a navy color and feel.
Painting with fruit sound neat. Anyway, that's my first idea.
Oh and I like the idea also of seperating the tiers and putting lemons in between.
Found this, it sounds like the sliced the Oranges then candied them....
I also liked the one joyfullysweet posted in that first link a lot!
There you go Megmarie... that is how I was thinking!!
Did you see this one?
Just the first one I found doing a gallery search for 'lemon wedding'
Thanks for posting the links guys! djs-I saw that one which is very cool. I have found a couple with pears on the cake which is stunning but very few using the whole lemon.
