A lady has ordered a Lime Green and Hot Pink babyshower cake. I have went and got the Americolor Electric Green for the Lime Green but she didn't have any of the Americolor Electric Pink. So what do I do now. I have to make it tonight!!!! I have most of the Wilton colors can I use any of them that will give me the color pink that will look good with the Lime Green?? Please help me!!!!!
i would use a combo of the rose pink and the pink colors...the rose tends to get kind of red looking (IMO) if used by itself...adding some of the actual pink color should give you that bright pink that i think you're looking for..
Hope this helps.
I think that the wilton pink is very bright! The first time I used it I found it a bit shocking, I find the rose a bit more subdued
I just did a Bright Pink and Black cake for a baby shower---last night....My pink came out so bright and I just use the Regular Wilton Pink/Pink---If I want very bright Pink/Hot Pink I don't use the rose color Pink.....Good Luck!
I just tried Americolor's electric pink and I wasn't terribly impressed - it wasn't that nice hot pink that I thought it would be so I'll have to experiment with the Wilton colours as well.
The wilton colors will work just fine. I use them all the time. I've always used the rose color for bright pink.
I agree with all above, the regular Wilton pink is extremely bright, hot pink all by itself
Thank you all so much! Wilton's it is!! Do you think I can get a better Lime Green with a Wilton color than the Americolor Elecrtic Green?
I just did this cake yesterday and the dots were done in Americolor electric green. I like it because there's no mixing of colours to get the right shade - if it's the shade you want!
Oooh, that is too cute! That is the color that I'm wanting! How did you do those letters? I love them as well!! Thanks so much!!
Thanks!! The letters were done with Tappits in the funky alphabet font.
Tappist? What is this?
Tappist, what is that? How do I find it so I can do it!
Thank you sooooo much for the link! I just ordered stencils and other stuff from GSA , but I never even noticed those.....THANKS Again! I love CC!
I have read that you need to use gumpaste - not fondant - and roll it out fairly thin. Let it sit for awhile before you use the cutters and they should pop right out. I think that some people use crisco on their cutting surface first so that the gumpaste will stick to the surface and not to the cutter. There are quite a few threads going about tappits, so you might want to read some before you try to use them.
I went to Sam's and got hot pink from the bakery... It was only 10.00 for 8 pounds.. It looked good on my cake.. They say they will sell any color we want..
