I have an order for a cake topped with a big hot pink bow. I made the bow out of gum paste and left it too dry. However this morning the color looks more bubblegum pink instead of hot pink. Is there a way to make it darker without having to start over again?
If you have an airbrush you could touch up the color with that, otherwise (unless one of these other talented artists has a better idea) you probably need to start over. (Sorry)
I don't have an airbrush, and I've had some luck by 'painting' gumpaste with food coloring mixed with vodka. You can test it on the back of the bow. I would try that before starting over!! Good luck!
You can also try using petal dusts if they are available to you.
AYou could also dust it with a darker shade and then steam it, if you don't have an airbrush. That would probably give a more even result than painting it.
Thanks for the tips. I just decided it would take more time to fix then to just start over. The end result turned our great though.
