I need help getting a deep deep purple color. I started out with purple coloring, but it's just not dark enough. Any suggestions? It's for a bridal shower on cupcakes I have tomarrow!
Since you posted this several hours ago how does it look now? Dark ccolors take time to develope their color. Making them at least the night before is highly recommended!
Next time: start w/a base color. In this case a medium pink or blue before adding the purple. You will use much less of the dark color (which usually makes the icings bitter) to achieve the dk color you want.
