I am trying to tint resin to pour into coffee cups that will look like real coffee. So far I have not found the perfect combination or dye. Does anyone know what to use?

Coffee-brew yourself a cup and use some to tint the resin. I did tea that way, coffee should work the same way.
Be sure to let the coffee cool so that it doesn't act as a catalyst too early in the process (lol, ask me how I learned that one!).
Does anyone know how to make fake food? My husband is restoring an old car and I wanted to surprise him with one of those trays that hang on the side with the food on it or even the spilled fake food.

I want to make a fake wedding cake for displays. Any ideas?

A funny story I HAVE to share!When my Daughter married last year I baked her wedding cake.Along with all the other chores to be done I was running on a tight schedule and didn't get it baked until 2 in the morning of the wedding,and the top layer hadn't baked completely when I started decorating. In tears I vowed I wouldn.t be defeated. I iced the pan of the top layer(which wouldn't have been eaten anyway!!) and instructed the girl cutting the cake to take it off discreetly before cutting the other layers.HEY---you gotta do what you gotta do!!! No one at the reception but me and her knew the difference!
Does anyone know how to make those fake cakes? It looks like the frosting is made of plaster of Paris.

This link has some interesting items.
If making a fake strawberry pie, with no top crust, how do I make the fake gel?
I'm thinking that colored glue might work for the gel. Just add food coloring to any glue that dries clear. You might need quite a bit so I would go to multiple bottles from a dollar store. Now paste food coloring might give u a better color, but is more expensive. You could also try poster paint in powder form. Mix it slowly until u get color you want. You might need to work fast or it may take awhile to get solid as the layer would quite thick I would think.You could always make or buy a styro circle that fits in the pie shell and just do a medium thick layer of the gel. Hope this helps.
Does anyone know where I can find recipes for making fake fruits, pies, candy, and more? I am having trouble finding this. I would love to make these for my family.

I googled it and found hundreds. Just click in images and pick the food you want to recreate. Good Luck

I finally found out how to make fake cakes but I can't find out how to make the "fruit topping" that looks like the fruit is in juice that I have seen on fake pies and cakes. Also, I need help with making fake crumbs that go on the side of fake carrot cakes or fake angel food cakes. If anyone could please let me know how to make these or knows a useful website for the supplies, I would greatly appreciate it.
Have a great day!
