Shades of Blue
I was told that the colour theme for this wedding was blue and silver and I was given free rein on the design of the cake/cupcakes and the shades of blue I could use.
I decided to use mostly lighter shades of blues and with a touch of darker blue. Somehow, I ended up with turquoise & white for the frosting, a darker shade of blue and of course, a touch of silver.
Upon reaching wedding venue, I was suprised to see that the decor was actually in sky blue, cream and touch of gold! No traces of silver! After checking with my customer, she confirmed that she was initially told that it will be blue and silver but apparently there were changes that she wasn't aware of until the decor was put up. She was fine with the colour combi I did....phew....that was a relief!
