I remember the first time I saw the brown and blue color combination thrown together on the same palette. It was 2005…a Wednesday. It was raining. I worked in a small retail store, and Vera Bradley had just put out her new patterns for fall. Right then and there I fell in love with the illustrious Java Blue. (Which by the way, went on to be one of Vera Bradley’s all time best sellers. Apparently I wasn’t the only sorority girl who fell in love with the combo.)
The pattern has long since been retired but the colors have been paired together on everything imaginable, from clothing to bedding ensembles and beyond. And now, brown and blue have broken the final frontier: wedding cake.
I love this cake. It’s a three-tiered round cake covered in a chocolate brown fondant. I personally love how each tier has a different blue fondant design as opposed to the popular alternating design. The cake was made for a bridal show by Amphora Bakery in Herndon & Vienna, Virginia.
