Hi I'm making up Mango Coloured Cala Lilies for a Wedding Cake tomorrow and I think they are a bit too orange. I'm wondering do any of you think that having coloured the actual gumpaste orange can I now correct the shading with yellow blossom tinted dusts or am I going to have to bin my perfectly shaped lilies....

Don't bin them. Test some excess paste with a some yellow, very pale orange, or even some silk white luster dust. Using straight white petal dust will probably not look right. The silk white is very pretty, cuts the color only slightly, and doesn't streak.
