I would really appreciate your input.
I am making a 65th wedding anniversary in a few weekends. I googled and noted that the color for a 65th wedding anniversary is sky blue. However, when googling 65th wedding anniversary cakes on google, most of the cakes I see look a lighter version of royal blue to me (definitely not sky blue.) I'm pretty sure I'm not color blind LOL, but sky blue is not the same as a lightened royal blue. Here is the link I am talking about:
Should I just go with my gut sense of a typical sky blue color (which I already have from America Gel Paste), or should I go with the norm of cakes I see and make a more royal blue looking color?
What would you do? This little color issue is confusing me WAY too much!!!!
first of all thanks for asking this -- i'm going to, no i am already enjoying this answer --
girlfriend, you artistically can not only break out of that mold never to return you can also never ever ever limit your artistic ability -- you fly to the moon and beyond with every cake you make, paper you write, wall you paint, photo you take, craft project, portrait, table you make, flower you plant etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc --
fly as high and as far and as beautiful, wonderful spectacular, magnificent, brilliant, courageous, artistic, colorful, as you can possibly make it -- as much or as modified as YOU want --
it's all up to you --
you are hereby fully authorized, officially empowered, completely equipped* and ready to go --
So your answer is........ no, you're not color blind, go with your gut instinct for sky blue then! LOL! Thank you for your reply though. By far the best best reply I've had to any of my neurotic / panic cake decorating questions lol! :) I hope it's alright if I post your reply on my FB cake shoppe page---love it!
i'd be honored to be posted on your page thank you --
all the colors are yours -- sky blue upward and onward
