and how do I get it? I want to create the Wilton school: Decorating cakes cover cake for Mother's Day.

I want to recreate it in a similar fashion, using similar colors. How would you get that shade of pink? Do you think that some type of luster or something is used after the cake is finished? Most of my pinks are bright, so I'm thinking maybe black is added... help!

Thanks! Here's the link to the image: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/0912696591/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_0?ie=UTF8&index=0

Here is a link to the Wilton color chart. I don't know what they used, but I do have the magazine at home. I will check.

I'm almost positive that is Wilton's Aster Mauve. Here's a set with that color in it:

My guess would be either pink with burgundy or just burgundy.

I have the book. Wish I had a scanner, but hope this helps...

for the roses divide your RI into 2 parts. The first part tint aster mauve and pink and the second part make it a lighter version of the aster mauve and pink.

It says you need 40 roses in total for an 8 inch cake.

If you need anything else let me know.

I sooo want to find the time to make this cake. It is beautiful.

Thanks so much everybody! I actually ordered the book yesterday, but it won't be here in time for mother's day. I'll attempt the cake this weekend and if I don't like how it turns out, I'll attempt it again once I've got the book.
