This is my first post, have been a member for a few months or so. I just finished my website and have a customer who was looking at it and wants a small wedding cake. She is wanting it to be like a red velvet cake but her main color in the wedding is burnt orange. She is wanting the cake itself to be a burnt orange color but wants a red velvet cake. How do I go about making the cake color to be burnt orange. I was thinking a half bottle of each red and yellow to make the orange but then how to make the burnt color part of it. Will appreciate help with this odd request. Thanks
I would just stick with orange color at first. Remember, you're going to have the chocolate color from the cake itself. I would just do some experimenting with different shades of orange if you have time.
I agree...I would make a red velvet cake and instead of using the red food color use orange....you may have to use a orange and extra brown to get the burnt orange look....I would practice with the color good luck
Maybe even try the Wilton Copper, that would make a nice burnt orangey tone.
Here's a post I refer to when I have questions about mixing colours. If you go thru all the pages you will find several different mixing combinations for the various brands of icing colours:
Also, I found these 2 as well on different posts today.
Sorry, double post!
This is the perfect topic for me. I'm doing a Red Velvet wedding cake and her bridesmaid's dresses are Alfred Angelo spice. How perfect it would be if her cake came out close to her dress color. My nephew (the groom) graduated from UT and I know that he would LOVE it. I will definitely be watching this one for ideas.
I guess I could still use raspberry filling. Taste wouldn't be an issue, but the colors could get pretty interesting ...
cookiebear, maybe we can try different ideas and share what we find.
