HELP....Pink and camo wedding cake ideas.... - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Camo can also be brownish fall colours, not just army green colours. Is the camo because he is millitary or because he is a hunter? If he's a hunter, think forestlike. Go to the Cabela's website and look at their hunting patterns. There is black and white camo for winter as well. And as for the classy, I would think more on the lines of making the design simple/elegant. I wouldn't want it too busy with camo in the mix. I find the combo odd as well, and I have to think that if they think it is a good combo, they may not have the most discriminating of taste.

this is the 'cage' look i am talking about for the 2nd tier. with camo stripes and cream or pink roping or dots to soften the look.

I think that is a great idea. You could make fondant figures for the bride and groom and have the groom above the camo side and the bride above the pink side and they could be holding hands in the middle.

I just went to cabela's myself (as hunting season is upon us), and I thought for the camo part (if it is hunting), you could do lots of fall leaves cut out and layered all over. I like camo better than pink, so I would go for camo cake and pink accents. I made a wedding cake for my cousin that was a (imho poor) knock off of a duff cake and it was a fondant cake with fondant leaves layered around the bottom of each tier (each leaf sticking up). So maybe a pink cake with leaves around it would fulfill the requirements.

The cage idea is really pretty.....Yes it is because the groom is a avid hunter and wants the greenish camo. Not my style but the client is always right. I think i will do a practice cake today with the cage idea and see how that turns out. I will take a pic and see what u all think. thanks again for the ideas it has really been a big help

Actual hunter camo is NOT blotches of colour -- it is all about leaves and sticks etc etc. I bet if you figure out a design that is more leafy than blotchy, he would agree to it -- it probably never crossed his mind that a cake could have a more realistic camo pattern. I would have slapped my husband if he had wanted a camo pattern on our wedding cake. Well, NOW I would probably say, go ahead, whatever makes you happy, but at the time there would have been sparks.

I thought that cage design was very striking (in the good way).

Dont ask me why, but I was dreaming about this cake and woke up wide awake at 3 am with an idea! Yes, I know Im crazy but I just couldnt go back to sleep till I got this out. This could be totally messed up because like i said.. i just woke up and its almost 4 am now! But what about camo butterflies added to the cake? not too many of course, just a few strategically placed. I read that all you need to make them is rice paper, edible markers, piping gel, black stamens, and then some royal icing for the bodies. The directions I found are here..

And I included a sketch of a couple camo butterflies I did. Does anyone else see the potential for this? or am i in a middle of the night delierium?

Butterfly idea -- brilliant.

Plus my husband is also an an avid hunter and he's gigantic, so it amuses me to imagine giving him butterflies.

Just to throw this in, another hunting idea is animals in silouhette (did I spell that right?) -- like a moose or buck or whatever. That would be hunting themed without having to be camo.

Did the butterfly pic work? I'm still trying to figure out how to work everything, so if not let me know and i will post it again.

. . . as far a coming up with a design . . . go through the galleries and find something you LOVE . . . and try to incorporate small elements of the pink/camo idea based on the cake you LOVE . . . for example, maybe the camo portion will only be ribbon . . . I have attached a camo photo for color ideas (hope it shows on your monitor the same as on mine?)
Image . . . I think the two shades of pink and the two shades of gray (or green if you prefer) could be incorporated in a wedding cake and look "classy" with the right design . . . but it will take a little tweeking and creative license to make it work . . . can't wait to see what you come up with . . . icon_biggrin.gif . . . I would try to keep the colors "fresh" looking . . . not the typical "muddy" muted colors of real camo . . . you could also use flowers (gumpaste or real) in the same colors as the camo (shades of pink and green) to tie it all together and keep a "fresh" feel about it . . . HTH
. . . Think of things not as they are . . . but as they might be . . . Don't merely dream . . . but create!!!
