Question about colors in holly arty cake or a Christmas split.

Post by maggie on Wed Dec 12, 2012 5:16 pm

I have a Christmas party this coming Sunday and believe it or not. I don't own a Christmas split/arty cake . I want to make one but now sure if I need pearls or regular colors. I remember reading something about colors not coming through next to each other, or maybe that was the 4th of July split.
Thanks in advance Smile

I tried to make a candy cane with pearl white as the white but it was new and too soft so it made a big mess. If your pearl/metallic white is pretty firm it wouldn't mix as much as regular colors. I just accepted that my candy cane princesses were going to be pink, they still look darling.

I have both of the Arty Cake holiday ones, I'll swipe them and the regular candy cane cake I made and you can see what's up. Smile

Thank you Denise, this is awesome...you are awesome!
What are the colors on the holly one? When I look online it looks like it has gold but I am not 100% sure.
Thanks again!

Btw I really like the pink candy cane Smile reminds me of the strawberry starburst candy canes, yummmm!

The "Holly" had more of a matte mustard color. So it's forest green/grass green/mustard/white/red and then "Holly Berry" is forest green/yellow/metallic gold/metallic pink/red...I think that one is the more festive. The Holly is more versatile for the rest of the year for mini roses and leaves.

I actually used the matte Holly cake for this mask. It's softer and more pastel so it could be used the rest of the year.
