I am so dissapointed right now, I found this picture of a really cool, pretty cake I wanted to make for a party tomorrow. It is two different shades of pink, so I made the lighter pink alright, and then tried to make the darker/hot pink... I was not getting it just adding more pink, so I added a dab of red, that made it go kinda rust colored, so I added some violet, not much better... by the time I finished adding almost every color paste I own (well maybe not ALL of them, hee hee) I am left with this odd purple color!!! Agh!! At least it is salvagable... I am going to try striping my bag tomorrow with violet, cause I am using this color to make roses, and maybe they will not turn out so bad after all. I don't have anymore shortening so I can't make more icing. It's just frustrating 'cause I had the cake pictured in my mind that it was going to look so pretty with the pinks & green.
