Q&A with Cake_Theory

nadyatk asked:
Love this!! How did you achieve this magenta colour? i find it the hardest to get right!
Cake_Theory answered:
Hi nadyatk, Diffent shades of detal dust and lots of layers! I actually used a very pale pink gumpaste for the flowers and I always use more than one shade of colour to get more dimensions - for this flower, I used deep magenta, pale pink, shimmering pink (medium hue), hot pink, fusia and mixed it with cornstartch so it doesn't go on too dark, then layer on the dusts until you get the colour that you like. I hope this helps.
