I'm making a graduation cake for tomorrow and the theme is Luau. I'm icing the cake violet and would like to make it a brighter color of purple. What do I need to mix to make the cake a bright/dark purple?
Any ideas would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Grape=1 part sky blue, 6 parts rose pink
are you wanting to make the cake or the icing purple?
I'm wanting to make the icing purple.
I have noticed that when I add yellow or lime green to darker red's and greens they become brighter.Try adding a bit of yellow to the purple and see what happens!!
Don't add yellow to purple.. you will get grey-ish brown. Yellow is opposite purple ont he color wheel and they make eachother duller not brighter. The same is true of red and green and blue and orange.
Americolor has a electric purple color. But I realize you may not have time to go get any but for future cakes all the electric colors are great.
