Hi All!

I'm making an open Tiffany box with roses coming out of it for an anniversary cake. I was originally going to do all white roses and then was thinking maybe I should add more color. But I'm really stumped on what color won't clash with the color of the Tiffany box.

Any suggestions?? Lt. pink? Pale yellow?

i'd do light pink. or maybe just dust the edges of some of the roses with pink luster dust.

My immediate thought was white - as you mentioned but as a second choice, my thoughts went to light pink. Love cakededecoratingsmything's idea about maybe white with pink luster dust! icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the replies! All I have is pink pearl dust, will that do? Do I wet it first or just do with dry brush?

weird, my post got cut off.

Do I put it on dry or wet?

I think for dusting just the edges, you'd want to put it on dry for a more subtle look.

Another way to get pink tips is to put a steak of pink gel in your bag from the tip to about 1/2 way up so when you squeeze the icing out while making your roses it will already be pink.

I agree with awolf24, I think if you dust the edges of some of the white roses, it wont' be overpowering. Very pretty.

Yes, I'm sorry, I should have clarified that they are gumpaste/fondant roses.
