Red Calla Lilies

These are some lilies I made for a cake sampling. The bride will be using red callas and want's a red velvet cake...Woohoo! I figured it would help to have a sample of the flower she wants to help her decide...It was a great idea as i got the deal!

Per your question: well Godiva, here is a case of the novice giving an expert some advice, which is very hard because your cakes are beautiful....in my art world, on the color wheel, the opposite of red is green....maybe a little forest green highlighter dust to darken the edges a bit......

I don't actually have a cutter for them, but enlarged a copy of an actual cutout to make this medium sized callas. The centers were made of yellow gumpaste and let dry...Then moistened with glue and dipped in cornmeal. Used a cornhusk veiner for inside detail.

This is the gumpaste I used for last year's Maria cake...I mixed tons of red red, super red and some burgundy...

OOHHH!! These came out great! See - I'm glad we saw the real ones at the store to put the photo in your head of how you wanted them! Fantastic!

It sure did help seeing them. However, I think I need to add more contrast on the edges for a better look. What do you think I can do?

No, I just did it based on what the real one looks like...this must be the easiest flower to make though...just cut and wrap.
