The bottom tier was six thick layers high. The very dark teal was hard to make and probably the most challenging part of the project. When making a super dark color, start with dark pre-colored fondant, never white. Make sure to add some black. If you can purchase some powdered color, it would help. The amount of gel color you have to add makes your fondant very sticky and loose. You will need to work powdered sugar in with the color to keep the fondant the right consistency. For the chevron design, we made a stencil and traced the design with a scribe (a pin with a handle). We used Nu-silver and painted on the design. We did the same with the pink layer, but just painted the stripes with super pearl luster.
