@xoxovmarie: Mmm you’ve just made me hungry. I think it’ll look fine, you bring in your colours with accessories.

Our favorite flavor from the local bakeshop happens to be a dark chocolate cake with Nutella frosting and caramelized hazelnuts. Since we weren’t willing to sacrifice flavor, we ended up with a brown cake at our intimate reception. I think it ended up looking awesome once we set it on our cake stand and put our topper on it. (Sorry I don’t have better photos – I’m still waiting for our pro pics.)

@xoxovmarie:  Not exactly what you asked for, but our cake was black and white with lots of bling 🙂

@xoxovmarie:  There are clear-ish peanut butter extracts, but maybe your baker doesn’t user them.  If you have your heart set on a white frosting, think about having the filling (between layers) in PB or maybe the cake itself.  You can have your cake most any color & flavor now days – cake, filling, or frosting.

A Side Note:  You might consider a few cupcakes or sweet not in PB for those that have nut allergies.

Mine wasn’t white, it was a few different shades of light pink.

how funny — I SPECIFICALLY did not want a white cake.  Nothing in my wedding (except the pantaloons under my dress) was white if I could help it… this cake was everything I dreamed of and discussing it in abstract was frustrating so I know where you’re at.. 

If I am not mistaken my baker mixed turquoise into the icing (with something else) to get the darker — and the lighter is a white buttercream with brown vanilla.. I almost cried. I cannot lie.
