I'm trying to color fondant the same color as the top tier in this picture- http://cakecentral.com/g/i/2903033/hello-kitty-cake/#order=2662&albumId=8&nextId=2903034&prevId=false&imageId=2903033&imageESOId=6838169&fullUrl=%2Fg%2Fi%2F2903033%2Fhello-kitty-cake%2F%2F&fullSrc=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn001.cakecentral.com%2F2%2F28%2F900x900px-LL-2819e953_DSC_5578.jpeg&thumbSrc=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn001.cakecentral.com%2F2%2F28%2F50x50px-ZC-2819e953_DSC_5578.jpeg&description=Hello+Kitty+cake&original=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn001.cakecentral.com%2F2%2F28%2F2819e953_DSC_5578.jpeg&setName=&urlSlug=hello-kitty-cake
Its kind of peachy, but I can't seem to get it no matter what gels I use. Any color experts out there have ideas? I generally use americolor or wilton gels.
Thanks for help- I'm wasting a lot of fondant trying to get it right!
I'd probably use Wilton rose pink for that, but the red colors tend to change a lot anyway as the fondant sits. I'd just do a general pink color and not worry about getting it exactly right. Start light and work it darker bit by bit.
Thanks for the response, but I really was interested in that shade of peachy pink that I can't seem to get. Any ideas out there?
Americolor makes "peach" that is a perfect peach color. Can you get this?
I can... do you think the color in picture is just the peach, or is there something else mixed in? THANKS!
I think it is a light peach. If you google "how to make peach color" you will see lots of advice. I am not good at mixing colors to get my end result. I would rather buy, if possible the gel I need. The americolor peach is very concentrated, so start of with very little and add if needed.
