I like color as well, but some people really get freaked out by food coloring for whatever reason. Maybe do one layer like that and one layer normal, because I can definitely see some people not wanting to eat something colored blue, as fun and harmless as it is.

I think its a fun idea.Just explain that its a pound cake. So your guests won’t think its some strange new flavor.

I think it might look pretty but when it comes to eating it some people might have problems with it.

I read somewhere that if you want to minimize the amount of food you eat put on glasses that are a shade of blue. People find blue and green food less apetizing and even if it tastes good the brain might tell them that something is wrong. Think about it, when food gets moldy its usually blue.

I hope I didn’t sound too much of a buzz kill about the cake but just think about other people and if you want them to enjoy the cake.

I make colored cakes ALL of the time for my kids.  They think it is fun to cut into a cake and find a pretty color (or six pretty colors, if the case may be).  It never alters the taste.

As a matter of fact, I made a six layer rainbow (one color on each layer) buttercream cake yesterday and it was divine.  (Like this…not my cake…I used green frosting yesterday)

i love the idea and think you should do it. that’s actually what i’m planning on doing for my cake, only with about 4 different colors. i’m not a big fan of cake, but since everyone else insists that we have one, we’re doing a multi-colored cake. i make rainbow cupcakes often and my hair is pink and blue and purple and every other color in the rainbow, so i think our guests are expecting it, haha. however, the rainbow cake will just be for us and maybe our wedding party. the rest of our guests will get sheet cake from costco.

might want to try it first and make sure the blue food coloring doesn’t stain your lips, mouth, teeth a blueish color and ruin any later photos! also if there is cake smashing, how do you feel about blue cake on your dress?

I love the idea! I think it’s very creative and fun πŸ™‚ and the marble idea is a good compromise πŸ™‚ I love colors and had a VERY colorful cake (our wedding colors were shades of blue, green, and purple) but only on the outside πŸ™‚ Here’s a pic of our colorful and bright cake πŸ™‚

I think it’s a great idea. If it is ‘you’ then all power too you. I wouldn’t be weirded out at all by that. Besides, if people are too weirded out, it just means more cake for you and your man later on πŸ˜›

At an event like a wedding, where lots of pictures are taking place and it’s a more formal (or semi-formal) atmosphere, I’d probably not eat it out of fear of it staining my lips, teeth, and tongue.  I’m all for fun colors at a casual birthday party, though.  Also, certain food colorings do taste bad, so I’d verify with the baker that the colors you want to use won’t make the cake taste different.

I would only worry about it turning my lips/tongue blue, otherwise I think it’s great
