This was my wedding gift to my daughter's friend. Couldn't believe that she wanted PURPLE buttercream!! I really stressed about getting the right color, but it turned out ok. Gumpaste calla lilies.

The cake is beautiful and the stand impressive. The picture would have been so much prettier without the utility cart at the top of your cake

Thanks so much everyone !! I agree, the background is not very pretty in the pic. We delivered the cake early,and the set-up for the reception was just beginning. We delivered the cake already stacked using the Cakestacker System. That system is amazing!!! It didn't budge, even when we had to cross seven speed bumps to enter the venue!!

To get the purple shade, I started with a bright pink using Wilton's Rose Pink and then added Americolor's Electric Blue a drop at a time until I got the shade that I needed.

Love your cake! I too purchased the cakestacker system and love it. We drove from near Chicago Ill to Lake Geneva Wisconson and the cake didn't even budge.

Beautiful cake!Love the flowers!
I have to make a purple 3 tier wedding cake too in October..I wish I was using something white for contrast....but I am covering the sides of tiers with black fondant lace! I already know it is going to be a disaster ,lookwise! But that is exactly what bride wants! Wish me luck!:-(
