I need to make burgundy flowers on a grad cake for next week but I don't have any burgundy coloring...I have lots of red and every other color..

What are the suggestions to get a deep wine burgundy?

I had a burgandy guitar that I did earlier this month and I used burgandy paste dye from Wilton and added a bit of blue and a bit of Red Red from Wilton. It's a good thing I did the coloring a couple of days before having to ice the cake because I had to keep adjusting the color and checking the color every few hours or so until I got an actual burgandy. I'll post the pictures as soon as I download...
Bottom line, burgandy from Wilton is not a true burgandy....

No..not really..I tried it a few months ago and used pretty much the whole small bottle and it sill was like a dark purply pink....not nurgundy.
