This cake looks like it has been sprayed with luster or pearl dust. Do you have access to an airbrush? You just put the luster/pearl dust in the bottle and mix it well with a little vodka or lemon juice, then spray directly onto the cake. It gives that plain Wilton blue color a great shimmer. HTH!
The color is probably just a sky blue...It doesn't look like it's purple enough to be the cornflower blue. If you use a gel color you can get it that intense without much trouble.
Yes, I agree. It looks like sky blue for the background. You could probably add a touch of navy blue in your sky blue icing to deepen the colour for the scroll work. Just add a tiny bit at a time til you get your colour.
Good luck. The cake is beautiful and I'm sure you'll do a fabulous job!
Thanks for your replys. I was thinking it could be Teal colour. In wilton range they have Teal. Should I spray the dust first and then do the scroll work? Bit confused now.
Bakery craft makes a shimmer spray for your airbrush. I'd spray it first, let it dry, then do the scroll work. Love the cake!
Thanks for all your help. peacockplace, I don't have a airbrush kit. I thought I would colour the fondant, cover the cakes and then spray it with PME Pearl lustre spray. They also have this Berry Blue colour spray. It might do the trick as well.
Oh hope I'm doing the write thing. I should make a trial cake.
Hi Bashini, I love this cake ... it's gorgeous! I had a look at the last photo you posted, and the blue you used looks very much like the blue in this cake. I'm not sure about Wilton colours ... have never used them, but I agree with Classycakes, the scrollwork looks to be done in a darker blue, with some highlighted gold bits. If you're going to use the pearl spray, I'd probably apply it before doing the scrollwork. I love the peacock feathers on the top ... they bring all the colours of the cake together! Can't wait to see the finished cake ... good luck!
The gold dots look like gold dragees. As for color I would agree with everyone else. I would spray with pearl dust first and then pipe afterwards and add the dragees.
I have the Wilton Teal color and I think that is what you're looking for. The cake color might be a mix of the teal with some sky blue, but I think that cake definately has some greenish undertones that the teal is going to provide for you.
