I've noticed that whenever I use the Wilton violet color to get a lavendar colored fondant, it fades to a very blue tone after it is on the cake if I let it sit overnight. It still looks light purple/lavendar, but is definitely borderline. Does anyone have a trick to avoiding this? Should I add more violet color to my fondant? Should I add a little bit of another color to keep the blue base from coming out? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
The UV exposure do that with some colors...Stay away from bright windows or UV lights that might change the colors of the cakes...
Hi there, I always use Grape Voilet from Sugarflair. You can use it to get different shades of Violet. I don't know whether you can buy it there. I haven't tried wilton though.
Can you get Americolors? They are a gazillion times better in my opinion.
When I do cakes with any darker colors, I put them in the fridge to help prevent bleeding and fading, even fondant. Maybe you can try that.
Thanks! I just got some Americolor & am going to try it today.
