I’m considering using a peanut buttercream frosting for our wedding cake (we love PB) but the baker told me it wont be white… more like a neautral tone. I’d like to see what non-white wedding cakes really look like. Please post pics!

@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.

Im not sure what a “neutral” tone ish looks like.. but this is my cake. Its not exactly white, its more of an off white.

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.

Ok mine wasn’t anywhere near neutral but it’s not white 🙂
