I have a cake to make next week and the customer wants burgandy icing. I'm doing bc but don't know how to get the nice burgandy I want. I have one bottle of AmeriColor burgandy coloring gel. Now how do I get my pretty burgandy without ruining numerous batches of bc??
Thank you thank you thank you in advance!
Hello great colored icing people out there. I need HELP!!!! UGH!!
I am thinking outloud here....are you needing more of a purple burgandy or a red burgandy, like Texas A&M colors? I think I would add a little, let it sit for a fe hourse, then add more. I have used the burgundy Americolor before to make maroon football helmet cookies and the color came out great - I just had to add lots of it!
I know that this is after the fact, but you can read my forum question about this if you'd like (search for deep red fondant). My suggestion after ruining a batch of fondant with too much burgundy would be to start with a red base like wilton red-red or no taste red color to it first, then add burgundy, and let it sit to see how it turns out.
