There is a small college in my town and their colors are purple and gold. Every Saturday during football season I see cars and people covered head to toe in purple and gold. This cake is for them…and anyone else who likes purple and gold.
I love, love, love the deep purple almost eggplant-y flowers. A few years ago my best friend, who loves purple, was getting married and I desperately tried to convince her to let us wear eggplant-colored dresses. This may have been selfish because I was going to be eight months pregnant at the time of her wedding and wanted a slimming color. For some reason she decided on Watermelon…and that’s exactly what I looked like. Oh well, it wasn’t about me. My point is that eggplant really does something for me and I wish I was bold enough to paint a room in my house that color. The gold ribbon is a nice accent to the dark flowers. The cake itself is a three-tiered round cake covered in flawlessly smooth fondant.
