I have to make this wedding cake for next Sat, (7/4). The cake is to be deep-pink. I bought 10lbs. of deep-pink Choco-Pan and it is a very ugly shade of pink, more like neon, bubble gum or play-dough pink. What colors do I add to give this fondant a pretty tone (between fuchsia and deep-pink). Pleeaaase, help!!!! icon_cry.gif

I would just add either deep pink or soft pink..when you add a lot it gives it a nice hot pink!

If you use wilton's rose color it gives you a nice "hot pink" color. But remember it darkens over time...so add a little until you get the desired color. You can check out my TT zebra cake that I did I used the rose color

I think Wilton's Burgundy makes a lovely pink. It's not a warm shade, but cool, and works well with silver accents.

to "tone down" a color you add a VERY small amount of the complementary color(the color directly across on the color wheel) (ex: red-green, yellow-purple, blue orange) pink is a shade of red so i would try a shade of green to tone it down. I know it sounds crazy but it's the rules of the color wheel. Gotta love art class. lol. Best of luck!

Thank you all for your help! I'll try anything at this point. I will start with small samples and then move to the 10 lbs. icon_rolleyes.gif Thanks again for taking the time to respond. icon_smile.gif Manna4
