Some days ago I made pasta with red cabbage…
Delicious, but you wouldn’t care about this, lol.
As the colour of pasta turned a beautiful shade of purple colour,
I thought to make my homemade, natural, edible and vibrant
purple colour, perfect for wafer paper coloring.
Just see the pics below and have fun.
Thanks for watching!
You will need:
white wafer paper sheet
washed and dried red cabbage leaf
unsalted butter or similar
mortar (actually I haven’t one… Lol)
Chop and crush the red cabbage leaf;
Add a small piece of butter to the cabbage and mix together;
Dip a piece of kitchen towel into the mixture and rub down the wafer paper;
You want to make a rose, so you have to cut out from wafer paper some small, medium and large petals, plus one little strip for the center.
Curl the strip with a toothpick.
Curl one side of each petals.
Cut the base of each petals (till 1/3 height) and overlap the ends you just got.
Add the petals to the center with a lightly wet brush;
I never thought I could make my own colour.
I think this shade of purple is simply gorgeous and
I’m sure you can make a better flower than mine!
