I've been asked to do this cake for a friend but I'm not sure how to achieve the color on the bottom and get the proper ombro effect?! Also do you guys recommend using fondant for the petals or gumpaste?

I would probably do a mix of 50/50 gumpaste and fondant so it dries. You don't want the ruffles to be droopy.  I'd say the darker color is probably pink with a little burgundy wine mixed in.
