Trying to find a specific color for frosting... mauve/dull pink.. help!

Hi all! long time lurker, first time poster. 

 

I'm looking for this color in the top right corner for frosting for my cousin's wedding in October. I'll be frosting cupcakes in this color (hopefully!!). I ordered AmeriColor Dusty Rose and Mauve. Mauve is like light purple and Dusty Rose is almost a lighter version of their Deep Pink. The Mauve - I had to use a TON of color for a very light outcome and the Dusty Rose was really strong. I think the Mauve could be it if I added something?? Anyone have experience with these colors?

Wilton has a color called Aster that I think will give you that shade. I've only ever seen it in a set of  "garden" colors with juniper, delphinium, buttercup.

I used Dusty Rose for a rose color but did not want it so pink. If you add a little dark brown and blend it, it should come pretty close to what you are looking for.

thanks all, I picked up the Aster color and will also try brown if that doesn't work!

Just an extra tip- adding ivory (I use Americolor gels) "mutes" colors down a bit very nicely, too. Good luck icon_smile.gif

Maybe you can also try the color 'Cyclamen' from Squire's Kitchen...... Good luck! :)
