My wedding colors are ivory, gold, tan, and brown with touches of black, green, and yellow (aka – camouflage). We do not want a plan cake, but we want it to be simple. So, we thought of making the cake colored but have no clue what color to make it. It’s going to be a small, 3 tiered cake. Please help!

@futuremrskoch: I voted ivory, but that’s becuse I’m a more “simple” kind of gal. Do you have any idea what you want the details on it to look like?
I didn’t want a whole lot of hooplah for ours, and I fell inlove with this one:
Do you have any inspiration pics? That way people can make a more informed vote 🙂

If you want to go crazy you could do this! Maybe replace the bright green with gold.
Or something like this would be simpler and fun
Maybe have different colored dots on each layer.

I voted Ivory as the base color, but there are lots of things you can do to incorporate all the colors – flowers, ribbons, dots, topper, etc.

@julies1949: Oh my! I’m kinda jealous I didn’t find that second cake on the right! I LOVE it.

Brown! Then you can get a chocolate cake. I think that too many wedding cakes, while gorgeous, do not look like something one would actually enjoy eating.

Here are some ideas, but not all of them are design ideas, just color ideas. And I’m not sure my cake maker can do ribbons, she refuses to work with fondont.
Ivory/Creamish colored cake
Chocolate Brown Cake
Chocolate Brown Cake with Tan/Gold Accent
Pale Yellow Cake
Ivory Cake with Multiple Accents.

@julies1949: I love the 2nd one with the twiggy ribbon accents! Thank you so much for that idea!

If you want ribbons, she can either use real ribbon, backed with parchment paper, saran wrap etc so it doesn’t get grease spots, or she can use chocolate modelling clay. It is made with white chocolate and corn syrup. It would be perfect for your wedding as it is an off white or ivory color.

I say camo cake would be cool.
