A client brought me this photo and is wanting me to recreate this cake. I'm having trouble with the blue on the fondant/gumpaste. I think I've tried about a hundred things, does anybody else have any ideas? I'm attaching the picture she gave me. Thanks!!

UGH! I can't get it to attach! Image

Did you try mixing the "Tiffany" blue gel coloring with a little green?

I'll tell you one thing, the lighting in that photograph alone is probably making the color look like something it's not. Based on exactly what I see however (bad lighting and all), I'm going to say that's probably some turquoise base color with a splash of navy or black to darken it a bit. But again, the lighting looks like it's not truly the color it should be.

hmm...I don't have any "tiffany" blue, just wilton colors... I figure the picture distorts it a little but the client is going to see the colors as needing to be the way they look icon_sad.gif This is why I hate "re-creating".

I accidentally made something very similar to that color that was 6 parts sky blue, 1 park royal blue, and 1 part grassy green (or any bright green). Hth

Try Wilton "Teal" by itself.

Teal! That's it.

I also agree with the teal color.
