Would you trust to have a blue cake? My wedding colors are blue and green. Trying to figure out if I should just end up doing a traditional white cake or if blue/green is okay. (Stain wise). I’ve heard of people complaining about after they smash the cake in each others face it stained for about a week, dont want that lol.

uhm why wouldn’t I trust it lol? I don’t think icing normally stains?

Are you afraid of getting icing on your dress? Or are you afraid of guests getting icing on their clothes?

I don’t trust blue cakes anymore because I caught one talking about me behind my back.
I am not sure about staining on this cake, but my daughter’s birthday cake had blue flowers on it and didn’t stain if that helps!

That’s okay! Though, our colors were blue and green as well, and we just did a white cake with blue trim…and then I did blue linens to give it that extra pop of color!

The food coloring in icing can definitely stain, but I think most people can eat cake carefully enough not to spill it. :/ If you are worried about it you can always use nonedibles to add color to your cake, like ribbon or flowers.

Why are you worried about it staining? Are you worried about smashing it? If that is the case, then yes, you run the risk of staining your dress. If you want to go with a color and still smash the cake, then I would go with a fondant and not a traditional icing.

you usually eat cake closer to the end of the day, so if a little icing got on someone’s clothing i don’t think it would be a huge issue… get the cake you want 🙂

I would trust it but I think that depending on how it looks it might not be that appetizing to look at especially if a lot of your guests are more traditional.

I used to decorate cakes in high school, and I can ssay that if you are using frosting, the amount of color that goes into it to make it a vibrant color can cause stained teeth and mouths. If you want it to be more pastel there likely won’t be a problem. If you are using fondant, I don’t believe there is as much of a problem with that but I am unsure (also- a lot of people just peel the fondant off).

I have always noticed any “colored” frosting/icing/etc stains. Maybe not clothes, but definitely teeth and mouth. Maybe try the icing at the baker and see if it stains?

We had a blue cake. A million people told us it would be tacky–but everyone loved it (possibly because it was really delicious). The baker didn’t even get the design right and people still loved it. Go for it!
PS We did not get stained from the cake. But we did have the color “sugar sprayed” onto the outside–it was not mixed in.

We had a blue/green cake and it was delicious. It was buttercream and I don’t know of any staining issues. We did not smash cake in each other’s faces. There are also no photos of blue teeth and I ate my whole slice of cake.
