Hi,

Have to make my first topsy turvy cake next week and the client wants it to be in those vibrant, really bright colours....

I know the orange I have will be pretty bright, but not sure about the green, pink and yellow.

I hope this isn't a silly question??!!

Thanks
Emma

Sorry. After reading it again, I didn't really ask a question.LOL
I was wondering how do you achieve the bright colours? Are there colours you buy or do you just add a heap of green etc. The colour I have at home just don't seem that bright.

Use Americolor gel colors they have electric green, pink, blue, yellow, orange and purple....these colors rock and are very vibrant. Glad I found and used them won't go back to anything else. HTH icon_wink.gif

Cake Deco sells it. (Well at least I know they do sell the candy colours)

If you can't get Americolor Electric Green, to get a really bright lime green, start by making a bright yellow using Wilton 'Lemon Yellow' and then start adding 'Leaf Green' - that combo makes a really great bright green.

Often I find I get a better bright orange by starting with a bright yellow base, then adding either orange or red red, or a combination.
