Is this buttercream? Try a VERY LITTLE BIT of black... Take out about a cup of icing and experiment with it...paying attention to what you do... You are using Burgundy color? I use Americolor burgundy...

Good luck! icon_smile.gif

Add purple and red together. This makes a great burgundy!

I had trouble with burgandy also.. and unfortunately this is the color for the major school around me icon_sad.gif ... I would try adding black to the burgandy as others have suggested..
