Blue velvet cupcakes for a wedding?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a potential customer who wants blue velvet cupcakes to match their wedding colors. I am concerned because I have read that the blue coloring dyes peoples mouths blue. I am thinking that if it was my wedding and I was going to be having pictures taken then I wouldn't want myself or my guests to have blue mouths. I have a sit down meeting with the couple on Saturday. How would you approach this subject with them? I tend to be a pretty straightforward and honest person who just tells it like it is, but I don't want to offend them either. Also, I have never done a blue velvet cupcake and it is definitely a special request. Any help/advice you can offer would be great. Thanks!

I think you could just explain your concerns to then and let them make the choice. It's definitely a concern especially at a wedding. I'd think they'd be happy you shared this with them.

If it don't make dollars, then it doesn't make sense ;)

I've never had my blue velvet cake turn mouths blue. Are you using gel food color? I'd make a test batch yourself before speaking to the couple - don't rely on something you read.

Would you mind sharing your recipe? My attempts at blue velvet have turned an unappetizing gray. Thanks!

I just use my red velvet recipe and use GEL food color, royal blue, instead of red. Make sure it's gel, not liquid. Americolor is a good one.
