I need to make maroon fondant for a grad cake. What colors do I need to mix? I tried red with a little brown and it didn't work very well. Thanks for any advice.
according to my color chart:
Maroon=2 parts burgandy, 4 parts red-red
Burgandy=5 parts pink rose, 1 part violet
Hope this helps!
i just posted color mixing chart in this thread.
I've tried Wilton Burgundy gel, but no matter how much I added the darkest it got was dark pink. Couldn't get it to burgundy. Any secrets?
Thanks Christi, did you have to use alot of Americolor? I used so much Wilton, it actually came the color of the color of the "My Account" box on the left.
I used quite a bit.... about 1/2 of small bottle of the americolor.. So get Americolor
Is the maroon on my cake the same maroon you are looking for (didn't know there were different shades of it but there are )
