Hi -

I'm making a small wedding cake for an Indian bride. Her cake topper is of a bride and groom wearing traditional Indian attire...the bride in a red/gold sari; the groom in a ivory suit Her reception colours are brown and turquoise. Anyone have any ideas on how to incorporate these three colours into the cake. I'm tempted to do it all white, but the bride is keen to have the brown and turquoise on the cake and I just can't fathom how to incorporate 3 such different colours. Any ideas much appreciated.

Which three colors are you trying to put together because you mentioned 5.

I think using the Brown and Turquoise as the base color for the cake (possibly using stripes of Turquoise on brown iced cake) and using red as an accent over the Turquoise will look really nice. If you do red accents in fondant or RI may be you can paint gold dust on some portion of it.

Ice it in chocolate ganache and use turquoise accents and everything will pop.
