Hey yall,

Anyone has good ideas / styles for Mother's Day fondant & buttercream cakes and cupcakes?

Also,has anyone had any luck finding a very deep red to colour gum paste roses? I've only seen Wilton Red-Red and Wilton Christmas Red (which is more like a pink red and I end up having to use red-red).

How about a cupcake bouquet? There's lots of advice on here, as well as tutorials!

For the color, have you tried adding any black or brown in small amounts to the red to darken it? I have come up with some beautiful shades of red by doing this. HTH!
