HI everyone, I have just been asked to do a 60th Birthday cake for my friends mum next weekend. She is turning 60. She loves roses so i thought that i would do a white 8" cake with light pink and dark pink roses on it. Had the design all set. Then my friend reminded me that i can't use white cause her mum is chinese and they associate white with death!

Now my mind is blank as to what colour to do a 60th cake! I thought purple but just not sure about it for a 60th cake.. Any idea's???
I can't use chocolate cause she does not like it.. Please any suggestions would be much appriciated!

You could make the cake a nice green color-- pink and green are a very visually pleasing combination.

Keep your design, just change your colors. Pale pink with deep pink roses. Pale yellow with light and dark pink roses. A pretty light lime green--- again with your pink roses. Lavender is pretty, or go bold and do a turquoise--also pretty with pink. thumbs_up.gif
