Good morning everyone,
I just sent in my form to enter the cake decorating contest at our local fair this year and I have found inpiration for the cake I want to make. I wanted to do something fall themed since it is in November and I found a cake that I have attached that I have fallen in love with. What colors would I need for this cake as far as the petal dust colors for the gumpaste flowers/leaves? I have already bought a few colors from lusterdust.com but I feel like there are other colors I need. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Thanks! I bought all the reds and oranges and yellows but the reds look purple and the oranges look red and the yellows look orange. icon_eek.gif Maybe they will look different when they go on the flowers?
