Hi!
I am doing my first ever wedding cake for a friend and she wants the attached daisies in her cake.
I urgently need suggestions on how to achieve the color for the petals and the center! (file attached)
Any help is greatly appreciated, especially because I am not in the US and any supplies I need to order TODAY to be able to get them!
(especially petal dust...)

...I already checked and the color will not make it on time to allow enough time to dry!!!!! I am freaking out!
I have the little Wilton's paste colors that has like 12 different colors...
Any idea on how to mix a color like this out of the colors?
Thanks!

What about using rose w/ a little bit of mauve? as for that shade of green i would think a kelly green.

I see the center as a greenish brown. I'd use a bit of brown & green mixed.
What Wilton colors do you have to work with?
A deep pink w/some lavender probably would work.
