I'm making sunflowers for a cake and my centers are looking a bit blah. I thought that maybe doing some shading with some petal dust would look nice but I don't have any brown petal dust and if I order it online, I don't think it will come in time (unless I splurge for express shipping and I don't really want to do that.) Has anyone tried using cocoa power as a petal dust? Thoughts?

i've used it to add an aged look test it on a small area and see if you like the effect works fine

I've done this before with gumpaste branches and it worked okay. It doesn't stick as well as petal dust so you need to kind of jab it in with  a paint brush, but in a pinch, it works!
