I made two display cakes for a expo in May. The colored one I made in purple fondant has changed to a sky blueish periwinkle color. icon_sad.gif

I plan to make a few more next week for a photo shoot, but Im concerned about the color changing and fading.

How can I keep my display cakes looking new and the color of the fondant form being distorted?

Pink and purple are known for changing colour and fading. Dusting will prolong the colour's life as will airbrushing. Try to keep the cakes out of the sunlight. White tone on tone cakes will last the longest as display cakes.

keep in a dark dry place any light will fade the colors
