I would want the one in Contour Silver. I’m about to paint my kitchen walls and this would compliment them wonderfully. For Halloween this year I’ll be baking a cemetery cake (complete with coffin, open grave and dirt pile) for my friend’s 40th birthday. The idea is that she will be “burying” her youth! Good thing she has a good sense of humor!!!
