We've all seen gender reveal cakes, right? The ones that are decorated modestly on the outside while holding a special surprise on the inside! Guests gather around the cake to find out the big secret: pink or blue!
Well, who says that cakes can only be colorful when you are expecting? This weekend I had the pleasure of making a cake a for a very sweet couple. Their colors were red and turquoise, a very unique and pretty combination. The cake was draped with a turquoise satin ribbon border and deep red flowers cascaded down the side.
However, guests were in for another surprise when they cut into their 3 tier dessert only to find that the bold colors continued! The French Vanilla cake had been dyed to match the turquoise color scheme and the Raspberry filling tied in the red!
While this is a great idea for some, it won't work for everybody. Dyes change in heat. So, if your colors are not standard colors (ie: salmon vs. orange) then it's best to avoid a mis-shaded cake. Also, if your colors are elegant (ie: black or gold) then keep the cake elegant as well...not to mention, who wants to eat a black cake! But for the fun, casual wedding with bold beautiful colors this a great idea to add something a little different to your wedding!
