I took all three Wilton courses. icon_wink.gif

Can you tell I didnt' know what I was doing. And just a tip, NEVER use a whole bottle of red food coloring. We were brushing our teeth for a week!

I'm so sorry. My kids would have loved the red teeth. What happened? What kind of icing were you using?

This was my first cake EVER...I used Duncan Hines from a can. And tried to tint the white icing red. Yick! I also used the whole bottle in order to get it a that red.

Gross, I don't see how anyone was able to eat enough to make their teeth red. Wilton red icing color tastes horrendous. LOL

Cute cake, though! icon_smile.gif

whenever I have someone that wants red or any dark color I worn them not to eat it and scrap it off.

I feel for you!!!!
I did something simular with blue!!!! thumbs_up.gif
I didn't know what I was doing either. I was the worst student in my cake decorating class and I used the blue two years after I graduated from class. I think I slept through class on color tinting!
Good luck next time!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Personally, I like the plastic snap off tips in the background. I always wondered if those things really work.

The ladybug may have dyed your teeth red, but at least you got a great story out of it!

Just thought I'd mention that next time you might try making the icing and coloring it the night before. I've found that red, black and other really dark colors seem to grow bolder as they sit a bit.

If it isn't the color you wanted in the morning then you can always add more.
Happy brushing.

I just wanted to clarify....I did that cake over 3 years ago, and now I have my own cake decorating business. icon_wink.gif

Just wanted to show where I've come from.

Anyone else want to post "where they've come from" Pictures?
