How did people respond when you said your cake wasn't going to white (or majority white/cream/light colored)?
And, if you still went through with it, how did it turn out and did people turn out to love it in the end?
We are considering a cake with red layers and blue layers. The way my FH describes it, it's going to be "AWESOME" and it's pretty much non-negotiable. However, everyone thinks he's crazy.
And, we drew a few practice drawings (nothing too fancy, just pens and colors) and I'm starting to think a royal blue cake (top and bottom tier) with a red middle tier would be really cool. Still, plenty of negative talk.
It is a marine corps wedding and he's pretty moto. He even wants the frosting design to be in gold over the red, and in red over the blue.
Anyone hear the negative talk before, but still go with a bright colored cake? Pictures? And did it matter to you what people said in the end? Did people like it after they saw the "real" cake?
Thanks for your ideas!
