I'm making cookie favors for my daughter's wedding, and her bridesmaids are wearing the color "watermelon", although, I think it's a deep raspberry. I've been experimenting with mixing colors, with no luck. Electric pink is too like pink flamingo - I've tried adding purple and red. No luck! Please help me! I would rather have the perfect color gel, if anyone knows where to buy! Thanks!
What brand/type are you using? I usually mix colors to get the perfect shade. I use Americolor. You may need to use more to get a higher concentration of the pink color, and add a deeper red to it.
Also, I would look at Americolor and see if they actually carry a color like that - I haven't looked online at their list of colors, just at my cake supply shop.
Thanks, but I tried mixing it like that. I ended up with a very pretty deep carnation pink - but doesn't match the wedding colors!
What brand are you using and what colors? I may experiment with mine, but it would help to know what you are using that isn't working
Most often, a Rose (3 parts) to a Red (1 part)will derive raspberry.
Different brands might reveal slightly different shades, but for the most part, the above equation should get you pretty close.
edited to add that powdered food colors are very close to real shades and I know for sure there is a raspberry powdered form.
You can do an online search for
color mixing chart
There are loads of color wheels and charts that will help you with mixing colors.
I use Americolor gel. I might have to try that raspberry luster dust. Thanks for all your help!
