EMERALD, so pretty, so dark, so beautiful and not so easy to color fondant in the right shade. We are no dummies, we started with Satin Ice Green, but then added lots of "forest green" to get the color were we wanted it. This cake is somewhat plain, but busy in the "texture" department. I used a mold for the band borders because I'm tired of plain ribbon :( The star of the show is clearly the bows. I know bows are also getting old and tiresome, but I think this is a little different since it's on it's side. The trick to this bow (a 50/50 mix) was to make the loops (three different sizes) and then before they get hard, start attaching them. You have to have a little flexibility.
What colors have you been digging lately??
