One of the things I absolutely LOVE about caking is playing with colors & creating new shades. So when I have the option of free design I end up with tens of bowls filled with different colors, though I only use two the rest are saved for another caking adventure...
A friend of mine wanted a couple of dozens that weren't too fancy but still elegant, she trusted my taste & gave me the option to do whatever I want. Though I planned Avocado green and Off-White, the mixing process had to stop the minute I saw the color; I fell in love with lime green.
My friend was amazed the minute she saw them so were her guests who asked if there was a "new bakery" in town.
Making these was a great opportunity. A friend of mine just had her baby girl, Rayhana, and asked me to make her 85 cupcakes for her baby shower. She requested different shades of pink, white, and silver. The colors together just worked out magnificently.
