Sapphire Blue Colour of the Year 2020


Deep blues are trending in everything from fashion to homeware to (most importantly) cakes! Our Sapphire Blue Ready to Roll Icing is still fairly new to our wide range of colours (we shared this new shade with you in November 2018), but it’s already proving to be a firm favourite with cake decorating enthusiasts.

How do we know this? Because we asked you, the cake artist, to vote for our new Colour of the Year – and Sapphire Blue came out on top by far. So 2020 will be all about inspiring you with this beautiful jewel shade of blue, and we’re sure you’ll inspire us too with your Sapphire Blue creations.

The deep colour of Sapphire Blue Ready to Roll Icing balances well with softer, pastel shades and makes the perfect partner for pinks, like our Rose Pink Flower & Modelling Paste.

Adding a floral spray to your Sapphire Blue cake would create a stunning effect for any wedding cake. Alternate tiers of Sapphire Blue and Pink Ready to Roll Icing are the ideal match for fun children’s celebration cakes.

Metallic paints and lustres really stand out against our Sapphire Blue Icing, which is perfect for the metallic cakes trend. Use Sapphire Blue and metallics for special celebration cakes like big birthdays, anniversaries, weddings (and many more!), or for fun themes like space or under the sea.

We recommend using the brand new Rainbow Dust Rose Gold Lustre with our Sapphire Blue Icing for a trendy cake design.
