What type of coloring or colors do you all recommend for red gumpaste roses? I usually just use no taste red, but this morning for some reason it didnt come out like normal. It is a coral red color. Some one said that christmas red is the best. The brides color is apple red. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I would start with just regular red or maybe bright red and tint it with brown to make it more natural.

Good luck

dusting with petal dust will always improve the colour, so it might be you can save the ones you have.
