Vibrant orange... does it go with gold or silver better?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone

 

I'm designing a cake with vibrant orange tulips and I want to airbrush the fondant either gold or silver.

I'm thinking maybe silver but would love to hear everyone's opinions on these colour combinations and which you think is better.

 

Thanks in advance xx

I like silver too.   But I love contrast.

Orange and gold though reminds me of a saari (from India).

Gold is softer and a nice nod to fall. Silver is more modern. My vote is gold but it depends on the direction you want to go with your cake. Can you post a pic of your tulips?

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

I think it depends on the style overall. I do like the contrast of silver and orange, but I love the richness and drama of gold with it.

Both would be beautiful, so it's a matter of choice.

IMO, the more vibrant oranges look great with gold but I really like the more toned down shades with silver.   Style and personal preference are big factors.

I love what I do and do what I love

I like either, depends on the look you're going for. Modern and a tiny bit edgy, silver; more classic or softer, gold. I LOVE the orange and silver wedding in the link!
