I went to my baker yesterday and I was shocked at how much sugar flowers can cost! However, we really dont want to pay extra for our cake since it’s included in our wedding package at our venue. The baker suggested instead of having cream cake and adding flowers is to either add fake flowers OR have a colored cake.
Any ideas on how to add purple to a cake and still make it elegant ? Any pics would be very helpful!

Piping? Piping is included in the cost of our wedding cake (unless it’s crazy ridiculous) & a white cake with a bit of purple piping and some fresh, white flowers (with purple accents) on top seems like it would look very nice.

Ribbon like this.
Fresh flowers like this. Could add even more.
Something like this minus the expensive sugar flowers and swag would be elegant.
Something like this with scrollwork, you could have it done with or without the heart scrolls.

I think a colored cake would be awesome and such a conversation starter. We had an offbeat kind of cake and so many people raved about it – they loved that it was different from the traditional white cake! Here’s some inspiration for purple cakes:
