I think you should be able to get all those colours using americolor gels. the sky blue, orange(super red and electric yellow) and light bright green looks like electric green-  I have made with them and I have seen a bright pink. hope that is of some help to you.

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .

thank you so much..that's what I have in mind..however,,...how can I get a sheen look just like the cake there ??

The sheen was most likely achieved by airbrushing a Pearl Sheen on top of the finished cake. It is a pearly shen and works great! If you don't have an airbrush machine, I believe you can find it in a can.  Here are a few cakes that I have used the airbrushed sheen on.

Yep you can buy it in a can - it's fairly expensive to do it that way - but it looks great. I think my last spray tin cost me round $13. To get the electric green a little darker I just add the tiniest bit of the sky blue to it - amazing how such tiny amounts go so far in the fondant icon_eek.gif

Americolor is fantastic.  I just did a black icing that was truly black and not dark grey.  The colors are great!

Had my blog listed and then realized one day that all you could see was "misadventuresofanal..." Took that sucker right off.
