Oh I hate this color. hate hate hate.

I always stress to customers when they want burgundy that it's a hard color and I can't guarantee a match.

I start with burguny or claret color, then add red and brown.

I Agree with chutzpah. Start I comine Americolor Burgundy with Wilton's Red and Brown. It was cause so much trouble in BC fondant is another story believe me!

Thanks so much! Lucky for me, I am doing a cream colored cake and the only thing that the bride wants in burgundy are the piped monograms.
