I was asked to make a 90th birthday cake and incorporate the party colours - dusty rose, dusty blue, and grey into the cake design. I can easily envision blue with grey or pink with grey but I'm having a really hard time working both colours into the design. I will be making buttercream rosettes instead of the fondant frills for the middle tier - I am leaning towards colour striping the bag in order to bring in the colours (some rosettes will be white/rose, others will be blue/white) - will this look okay or should I stay with one solid colour? I will also be adding a few gumpaste roses in dusty rose - should I also add some in blue? Normally I can see how it will come together but I'm really stumped on this one! Can anyone help and maybe suggest something else that will pull the colours together? Here is the gorgeous inspiration cake made by Sharon Wee Creations
Thanks for any suggestions!!
