Help!! Need color ideas

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have to do 50 cupcakes for work tomorrow. They have requested strawberry for the bread. I plan on making the icing buttercream. I will be putting a flower on top for decoration. However, I'm going to use fondant for the flower decoration. I want to use chocolate and possibly pink for the petals. I'm not sure if I should color the buttercream??? What would you do?

Pink & brown look really nice together. How about using pink buttercream with chocolate petals, and chocolate buttercream with pink petals??

Yeah I love the way they look together. Should I do a light pink for the buttercream with the chocolate/dark pink flowers? Or Drak Pink buttercream with chocolate/light pink flowers?

I think a light pink would look great with the flowers you've described.

Good luck!

Great Idea, if you have time you can add a green leaf you are set with your 3 colors.

Good Luck.
Practice Practice Practice.

I have some green fondant left over from this weekend. I'll see if I can add that. Thanks for the ideas
