Our color scheme for this wedding was khaki, white, and gold. White is an easy color to bring to the party; here we used white in the borders, piping, and in the roses I got from wholesalesugarflowers.com. A little gold goes a long way on a wedding cake and can be easily overdone. I used a cosmetic sponge to lightly edge each of the roses with gold luster dust.
I had a rough time getting the right color combination to get that perfect khaki color. Khaki is WAY different than ivory. My final recipe included mixing in brown, green, and just a smidge of purple coloring into my white buttercream.
