Hi Everyone:

I'm making gumpaste stargazer lilies for an upcoming wedding cake this month. I just wanted to know if anyone could help ...

What color of petal dust do I use to get that dark intense pink. I've made a trial lily and the petal dust I used was cosmos from the CK petal dust and it turned out to be a light pink, but I'm looking for that nice dark pink.

Any suggestions??? Please let me know!

thanks icon_biggrin.gif

There is a tutorial on this site. She is using orchid pink to dust this flower with. I don,t know what other pinks you have. hth Also, nick lodge used american beauty and plum mixed when i took his class.So people use different colors of pink. Just go darker that the one you don,t like.

I believe Edna uses Plum by CK Company in her video.
