Sourcing a bright, royal blue

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

I have been asked to make a wedding cake in royal blue. I am trying to source pre coloured sugar paste, but find many seem to be a fairly dull, almost navy blue. I am looking for a bright, rich blue as per the photo. (I am not doing this design, just referencing the colour).
I know I can trust your wisdom to come up with some advice, so thank you in anticipation 😁.

How about the Massa Ticino sailing blue?

Will have a look, thanks Elaine.

Massa Ticino or Saracino… you can always use a blue closest to the one you want and finish it with airbrush…

Your welcome Linda. And a tip for you. Knead in about 15/30 ml of baking soda. Won’t change the taste, or make your fondant gritty. But sets the colour so the blue won’t fade.

Don’t worry Marlene, wish I was the proud creator of that gorgeous cake.

If you are on Facebook you can ask the person who made this cake. 😊

But I think that the color is a little bit photoshopped. Just look at the black centers of the anemones, they appear blue too. 😉

The colour looks a bit like squires kitchen Magical Blue xx

Thanks Floralilie, I hadn’t been able to find the original maker. Yes, I must admit, I did think it looked as if it had been enhanced.
Will take a look at that Amanda.
I need a large amount, for a five tier, so am hoping to get pre coloured paste, and in at least 1kg packs.
Thanks all.
