AYou have looked at pictures, right? Like multiple pictures? Online? And you know that you can color fondant to get exact shades, you don't have to rely on what you can buy at the store?

Thanks for your reply AZC. my question is, are Spiderman and wonder woman  the same shade of red  Colour. I have looked at lots of pics. I am wondering whether w.woman has a slightly different shade of red.. TIA.  my cake is going to be red, gray,red 3tiers

I was confused by your question but your response to AZ makes a bit more sense to me now. 

I suppose it's open to interpretation. I just looked online at both characters and to me they look the same. If you really wanted to have them slightly different so all 3 tiers were different colours then that's entirely up to you though. 

 

Wonder woman also has the gold and blue so you could add those colours in too to break the red up a bit..

Thanks Sunshine. ok only now I understood why it was so confusing.... I thought that batman cakes covered in    fondant had to be grayish,   .  spiderman red and wonder woman had a particular shade of red. I am talking of the colour  of fondant    to cover     the cake - not the characters. trust my question is clearer now

AI would probably add a tinge of orange for the wonder woman tier and add blue and gold details like the other poster said. It would help breakdown the tiers and make them more individual. Or if tinting different shades of red a hassle, then you can put the batman tier in the middle to break apart the red tiers. By adding the right details, each tier would obviously show which superhero it is supposed to be. Good luck :)

There is not a specific shade of red that you would have to use for either character for it to be accurate, but they both wear essentially the same shade of red. As others have suggested, you could play with the red for one or the other to break it up some. Your call. 


If it were me, I'd focus on the star-spangled blue for Wonder Woman, with a liberal dose of gold accents--gold lasso, gold bracelets, gold eagle, gold tiara, gold shield, etc.  Of course, if it were me, I wouldn't mix DC and Marvel characters in the first place.  I know there have been comic crossovers in the past, but it annoys the heck out of me to see weird groupings of superheroes.  Which makes me a pedantic geek, of course, and I'm sure your customer specifically asked for this grouping of heroes, anyway.  ;)

 

Good luck with the cake!

LOL!  You are correct; a proper fanboy (or girl) would never mix Marvel and DC, or cross the streams for that matter! :D

AWell, glad you figured it out! Can I make a suggestion for your next photo? Ditch that aluminum foil backdrop. Whatever is behind there has to be better looking than that. The foil just really doesn't do the photo any justice. Just a thought. :)

I agree AZC. I was trying to hide the fruit bowl!!  but the  box covered in foil helped a lot with the lighting and for the first time I got the colours in a photo correctly because of the foil. Next time I might use cake boards for the back drop.

Oh, that's fixable in post editing. Just need to adjust the color with Photoshop, or Picasa, or something online even. If possible, bounce your flash off of a wall nearby, or off the ceiling, or off of a piece of white paper that's just outside of the reach of the camera lens, or crop it out when you edit your pics.
