I'm making a cake for a friend and she wanted red roses. I didnt have any americolor so used Wilton coloring. As they dry they look more orange. Is there a way I can fix these without redoing them? Maybe the spray mist color in a can? Red sprinkles? Or something else?
I have a bday cake to make for my mom this weekend and a cake for my final cake class. So, no time to redo.

I would just dust them with a deep red petal dust, it will add dimension to the roses and darken them up for you. Good luck!
