wilton makes a burgandy color that you can order online or if there is a Michaels near you they have it in the store.

Have you tried Sugar Flair colours? They have an excellent reputation for adding colour to sugar products.

Well burgundy is (in my opinion) a DARK red with a little bit of blue to make it a bit purple-y. So I would maybe use your burgandy and just see what it needs. If it's too close to purple, add some red. Possibly some black for a darker color. If it's just kinda RED, add a LITTLE bit of blue, or maybe just some black, since a lot of times that has a blue base to it as well. Hope you get it figured out soon! icon_biggrin.gif
