A[SIZE=3][/SIZE]Hi all, I have been reading and learning from all your posts for a few years now but never posted. I need advice for a cake I'd like to make for my son's birthday. I want to cover a sponge in a midnight blue fondant and then do like a Gotham city outline around the edge ( yes he's batman mad).

How would you best make a dark night colour please? I see amicolor have a navy blue but was wondering if that is too dark with the black buildings? If I put less drops in would it lighten it enough?

I've seen the sky blue one also but that is a very bright blue. Or should I mix my own with reds etc and if so does anyone have a colour chart ?

Thanks for any advice

Su

An ombre effect would be great from light at the bottom to dark on top so your sillouettes would really stand out. Like this:

 

 

Airbrush would be easiest, but possible to paint on fondant.

AThanks for that great idea ! I don't have an air brush system but could practice the painting way.

Thanks Su
