Where can I find the right turquoise coloring/fondant to make a Tiffany & Co. gift box cake?

post #1 of 17

Hi everyone!   I need to make a Tiffany & Co. gift box cake for a birthday in 2 weeks, and was hoping you all could offer some suggestions on where to find the pretty turquoise signature color Tiffany is recognized for.  I wasn't sure if I should color the fondant myself, or buy turquoise fondant.  Either way I was hoping someone could tell me the names of the brands of fondant and gel paste color perfect for this cake, and where I may purchase it.   Thank you in advance for all your help!  icon_smile.gif

Actually Teal is a closer color.  Either Americolor or Wiltons.  Here's the color on the cake I did:

Oh WoW!.. That is beautiful work!  Thank you so much Carmijok for posting it.  I also am panicked about getting the lettering right, can you please tell me which letter cutters you used and where to purchase them?  Thank you for all your help, it's very much appreciated.

Thanks Cakeart105, I'll definitely check out that link.  I'm always looking for good prices, supplies can be expensive at times.

The letters are FMM Tappits upper case alphabet cutters.  I modified the T & C to make them larger so they'd look more like the logo.  I stretched the C a bit and added height to the T by putting part of another base on it.  You'll know what I mean when you start working with it.   Don't know if you've used Tappits before but if you haven't, just make sure your gum paste or fondant is on the dry side before cutting.  Makes removal a whole lot easier!

I have made about 3 cakes on that Tiffany theme. The best way to go on color is 1 part teal/2 parts sky blue. I used Wilton. I went online and checked Tiffany's page so I can have a better idea of their palette. Then suddenly and luckily, I received a Tiffany's catalogue (wrongly delivered to me) so I keep it as reference. HTH.

I have the source for that color!!! Albert Uster imports has a color they call 5th avenue blue. They carry Massa fondant, gel color and luster powder all in that color. It is the perfect match!!

 

Best of luck,\

I agree with lanana about the 2:1 mixture of teal and sky blue. It gets the color exactly. Great cake carmijok, and the lettering was to die for. Why can I never seem to remember to let my gumpaste dry out a little bit before cutting letters? I always make it a much bigger job than it is!

Nice Tiffany Cake. Would you mind sharing where you bought the letters for the Tiffany letters? I have been searching for some.
