Today I’m sharing my new guide- ‘How to mix the Perfect shade of Dusky Pink for Sugar Flowers’.

Dusky pink is the most requested colour by my brides, when I’m making their wedding cakes, so I have made a lots of different shades of dusky pink over the years.

I use food colouring gels to colour my flower paste when making sugar flowers. By mixing different gel colours together you can make so many different shades!

Here is a little look a dusky pink memory lane sugar rose I have been working on. I coloured the flower paste dusky pink before adding petal dusts to create the finished rose.

In my free guide I’m going show you how to:

– use colour theory to help guide you when mixing colours for sugar flowers

– mix neutral colours with pink to create a variety of dusky pink colours.

– mix the exact dusky pink colour I use as a base for my Lovelace sugar roses
