My kids love ANYTHING blue. They fight over blue popsicles, blue juice, blue candy...etc. Blue cotton candy is my favorite and looks very appealing to me. I have seen blue roses so those who say they don't exist in nature need to get a book for ordering flower bulbs and seeds. Sure the juice from blueberries looks purple, but the actual skin looks dark blue. I think in todays society of "anything goes", blue cake would be more than acceptable!

I'm jumping in a little late here, but years ago I took a catering course and one of the things that stuck in my little mind was, because blue is not found in the "natural food world" people tend to not want to eat blue food. So in food prep like dip for veggies, don't tint it blue because people will leave it. Never in my wildest dreams did I think they meant icing.

This is very true. Next time you go past a row of fast-food restaurants, you will notice that all of their base colors (the ones used most) are red, orange, or yellow. Those are hot colors, and colors of hunger. Even inthe market, you will see that food packaging is often based on these colors.

Cool colors - blue, green, even purple, are cool colors, and are most frequently used as lettering, or in the event of a need for color-coding, as in milk sold by fat content. Even then, red labels and tops are used on full-fat milk, which is the most expensive.

One would think it more appealing to eat than Black Fondant - albeit i love working with it.
Quandongs are used to colour food blue because THEY ARE A NATURALLY BLUE FOOD - - and they have been around for 100's of years -like i mentioned earlier - people just need to get out more - icon_wink.gif

I've just made a small 5 tier bluish green mermaid cake that a 6yr old little girl picked out of a Debbie Brown book, her birthday was at Seaworld.

I'm also making a 3 tier Blue wedding cake for next weekend that's also a sea/beach theme.

I've got the blues and I love it icon_razz.gificon_wink.gif

Get "out" more? I'd have to get all the way over to the other side of the planet, and then some, to learn what quandongs are! icon_lol.gif

Ok, so what the heck are they? icon_confused.gif

Here you go PWS -

Here is a little extract for you -
Blue globular fruits that ripen between August and February, in subtropical rainforest areas. The outer part of the fruit is fleshy, and encloses a very hard stone with a deeply pitted surface which contains 5 cells, some of which are small and rudimentary.

Such a vibrant blue they are - thumbs_up.gif

The only reason why I might hesitate to eat a blue cake would be if we just simply to beautiful to ruin. There is nothing wrong with blue on cakes. I know study's have proven it less appealing but i dont think it really applies to cake decorating. If someone gave me a blue hot dog, yes i would be thinking "what the hell is that?", but not cake. Cake is yummy in any colour.

Oh, costumeczar, you have to ask her who it was - I am in the same area and am sitting hear trying to figure out who has a blue issue. I think its hilarious.

Blue is my signature color. I made a Blues Clues cake for one of my grands a couple of years ago. The cake was blue, too. The children enjoyed it, but the adults wouldn't touch it. They didn't want their lips turning blue.

My home is mostly pale shades of BLUE and White - so your cup matches -
You must bring it when you come visit Blue in her Blue and White home next to the Blue Indian Ocean - under the Southern Cross in the Bright Blue sky.

I usually don't ask specifics if someone starts complaining about another baker, so I don't know for sure. I have my suspicions, but based on a comment about a French chef giving that advice that was earlier on this thread, it could actually be three people around here, so I don't know. Actually, I'll bet that I do know, and I might go do some website research to see if there's someone who has no blue on any of their cakes! icon_razz.gif

I hear a lot of weird stuff that other bakers have told brides, because they come to me and say "so-an-so told me this..." and it's something really strange. This is just another one to add to the list!
