Purple Orchids Cake

This cake was decorated with gumpaste orchids...For the purple ones I started with a purple gumpaste, which I was 100% sure was going to fade out.

Of course, I was right, so after the petals dried I dusted them, then painted them, then dusted them again. The first dusting didn't fill in all of the veining on the petals, so I painted them, but I gave them a second dusting after they dried to make sure they were all a uniform color.

So the curse of the fading purple was defeated this time. Purple is still the trickiest of colors, though...
