I was so jazzed about the bride's choice of color's on this cake. Our color palette here was a light mint green and lavender.
This was a great cake to remind me about how colors and icing can mess with you. I had the perfect color of icing made up for the cake and even let the colored buttercream sit for a day for it to darken a tad. Everything was just right... and then I iced the cake. And the icing darkened... a lot actually. I wound up giving the entire cake a heavy spray of pearl dust, which gave the cake a beautiful sheen and toned that color back down to where is should have been.
When will the Home Depot develop a color matching system for icing!?!
