Gift Wrapped

I made a 'gift wrapped' cake yesterday and it was the highlight of my day. I started out with a yellow fondant and spent the better half of the day trying to figure out a good combination color for the extra accents. I looked literally everywhere for it, wedding theme sites, gift wrapping sites, color pallet sites, to absolutely no avail.

Finally I had to start with the cake without an accent color in mind and as I kept at the ribbons and curlers, I realized there were some extra purple fondant I had. So I tried to match the colors, creating what I thought was a perfect color combination for yellow.

In my humble opinion, yellow is a very strong color and rarely matches well with other colors except colors with a lighter and yellow tone (eg. cream, beige, light brown, rust and ultimately white). So you guys who are trying to have a yellow themed wedding - your work's really cut out for you :)
