I really like these color..I wonder can anyone help me with what brand and name of colors I should be using to ahieve these colors ?? and it seems to have a sheen look..How can I achieve taht ??
this might be a stupid question to alot of people..but I am new to baking so pls kindly help
I think you should be able to get all those colours using americolor gels. the sky blue, orange(super red and electric yellow) and light bright green looks like electric green- I have made with them and I have seen a bright pink. hope that is of some help to you.
Hope that is helpful
thank you so much..that's what I have in mind..however,,...how can I get a sheen look just like the cake there ??
The sheen was most likely achieved by airbrushing a Pearl Sheen on top of the finished cake. It is a pearly shen and works great! If you don't have an airbrush machine, I believe you can find it in a can. Here are a few cakes that I have used the airbrushed sheen on.
Yep you can buy it in a can - it's fairly expensive to do it that way - but it looks great. I think my last spray tin cost me round $13. To get the electric green a little darker I just add the tiniest bit of the sky blue to it - amazing how such tiny amounts go so far in the fondant
Americolor is fantastic. I just did a black icing that was truly black and not dark grey. The colors are great!
