I have a cake going out tomorrow for a baptism and I made this very cute pair of pink shoes to go on top. I am now covering the cake and the pinks are different due to fading. What would you do? Make new shoes or hope the cake fades to the same color by Sunday?
And here I was hoping to get some sleep tonight.
Sorry to hear that the shoes faded..i've had that happen before with gumpaste. I think when sun gets to them, it fades.
Do you have any pink petal dust or something close? Maybe you could just brush some on to brighten the pink. To get the colors to match at this point might not be possible. I would try and alter the colors with the dust, and make it look like it was meant to be different shades. ;0)
Do they look bad as different shades? Could you tie in the different shades? It really is tough to match fondant to BC. Just keep your shoes and cake out of the sun!
It's gum paste and fondant and I'm pretty sure she'd like them to match as much as possible. The shoes have little white polka dots so I guess I might have to try and take then off and dust the shoes darker.
I wouldn't even touch the shoes at all,i'll just pretend it's meant to look like that,i'm sure it'll look nice.
