My sister's 25th anniversary is coming up and I am doing the cake! I need to wow them since no one ever has faith in anything I do -

I am making a small 6" heart cake, and about 30 mini cupcakes (everyone is health conscious, don't want a lot of cake hanging around).. so I figured mauve and burgandy roses on mini cupcakes (colors of the wedding) and all white for the heart with white roses and maybe a little green for leaves and silver luster dust..

how do I get a good deep burgandy and a nice mauve color???

Wilton had a burgundy color paste years ago I don't know if they still do or not, if you go into the galleries and go to sketches and templatees there are a couple of color charts there.

I did burgandy on a cake last weekend and the burgandy parts tasted very bitter. I used wilton coloring on some and americolor on some. Wiltons was inedible. Americolor was better but still not great.
