I am out of my comfort zone here since the bride is asking for "deep, jewel-tones" for her wedding cake, yikes! I am so used to making pastels, whites, ivories, etc. Has anyone achieved a nice, rich color on their fondant cakes, and if so, what was the best method? I am assuming an airbrush would be the best route? Thanks

I've done painted fondant cakes in jeweled tones -- they look beautiful! Just use the colors of lustre dust you want, mix with a touch of vodka and paint to your hearts content. icon_biggrin.gif

I've been successful using americolor gels...the colors from my last two cakes were deeper, especially the little purse cake. I also dusted it with a matching luster dust to give it more richness & depth

To get intense colours I use Corella powder colours then lustre dust them.
