Anyone have these 2 colors. If so can you describe the color between the 2? The color swatches found online just dont help in deciding wich to go for!

Spiced Plum has a reddish-brown tint to it - think cinnamon.

I don't have any of the colors but I do have a question about Crystal Colors, as I just ordered a few colors to try with and color fondant.

Have you used these to color fondant? Are they good and give a good vibrant color to the fondant?

Thanks so much!

PS- CiNoRi- on an off topic, good luck on your move to Bucks County. I grew up there and till have family there, it is a great place.

Thanks mbranko24! Its been a long process, and still not over lol ill just be glad when things get more settled and such, so far what little i have visited the area im liking! Now if we can just find a house! icon_wink.gif

As far as coloring fondant goes. Yes it works wonderfully but for me right now for the cost of the CC, I stick with using gel colors/buying certain pre-made colors and mixing from there. If i really want the CC shades i just paint, brush, and airbrush it on. i would probably recommend that first, to see if ti will get you the color/shade you are looking for.

But over all CC are a dream to work with...great for dusting, painting and even making airbrush colors
