Hello everyone.
So I finished a cake today and accidently nicked the frosting (after the cake as done, of course. There would be no better timing for that, right?).

I tried to do a patch job, but now my frosting colors don't seem to match. The rest of the cake is burgundy and the patch job is lighter. I attached a picture so that you can see my frustrations!

How can I fix this?
Will time take care of the color issue?

Please, please help me!!

Thank you so much,

Scratch the picture, because I'm having a difficult adding it as an attachment here!

When you say "nick" I think "couldn't you just smooth it out"?

I tried smoothing it out but there was a large-ish dent because i nicked it with a finger so I added a little more frosting to keep it even. Now my frosting is two different colors. I'm so frustrated!

Not a lot of experience here but I'd say as long as you used the same batch of icing to patch, the colors will eventually blend together. Now, if you had to remix more icing just to patch, it's almost impossible to get the same exact color...
I'm sure you're more critical of it than you should be thumbs_up.gif
