For a quick tip on how to match buttercream to fondant as I did on the project see the end of the post...
The wedding was at the Jepson Center right here in Fredericksburg. I had no clue what the theme of the wedding would be other than they had purple as a wedding color. I was just delighted when I saw these adorable Love birds just scattered around the room and placed at every table...to cute! Here are some photos I managed to take after I set up my little display of sugar.

So here is the simple but effective tip for matching buttercream to fondant. I had prepared about 9 different shades of purple to white. I had six stands that I needed to get a decent gradient on. I picked 5 shades and one white. I started with white buttercream then slowly made my way to the dark purple. I had three different purple colors. One wilton purple and an americolor electric purple and regal purple. I basically color matched the buttercream to the fondant I set aside. Be patient when mixing colors and do not get frustrated. Don't be afraid to try different he's because you may need different undertones to make the color pop.
