I am in the process of making a coffin cake for a Halloween party tonight. I didn't want to colour my frosting black cause you have to use so much of it, and I'd rather not use fondant if I don't have to. So my plan was to try colour mist! I read the other post about the colour mist disaster so I followed the suggestions on that post. Well after a whole can it's still only a purply colour, it's very splotchy, despite having the can away from the cake to avoid puddles, and letting it dry in stages. I do have another can but at the complete lack of black on this cake.. should I even bother?? I don't have time to make MMF since I have no vehicle, with no marshmallows I was thinking of just adding a cross on the top and leave it purple.. unless anyone else has a suggestion? Should I bother with the other can? And this is not a paying cake.. just something I'm bringing to the part, so no worries on upsetting a client.. I"m already upset!!!!
I understand your frustration with your cake. Personally....I would leave it as is, purple and splotchy sound quite Halloweenie creepy to me! Using another can may or may not make it blacker. I would be concerned about making things worse. Good luck!
I wouldn't continue with the second can it might just make it worse. I LIKE purple as a halloween color. In fact purple and orange are what I think of as standards for halloween.
I agree, leave it purple as it's just as much a Halloween color as black is. Sounds creepy to me, exactly what you want. Add some black spiders or something to it.
Ok.. I was hoping I might be able to get away with it cause it is for Halloween. Thanks so much for the replies.. sometimes it's just nice to have people back-up what you're thinking
oooh DFND, I like the spider idea. I have to go to a dollar store anyway.. I'll pick up some of those plastic ones. Great idea!!
