I have the Wilton gel food color that comes in the box and the blue color I have is Royal Blue, but I want it to be more of a dark blue. If I add black to it will that make it darker?
Do I mix the food colors before adding it to the BC?

TIA

If you don't have time to get the americolor navy blue, then black in the royal blue should probably work? I think wilton has a color mixing chart on their website? check it out, or try and find one online, I'm sure there are several - I've looked at them before I just can't remember for sure where.

I'm doing a "Dallas Cowboys Blue" buttercream cake next week. Almost everyone started with Royal and added a little bit of black. That's what I'm planning to do, but I have tried it yet. icon_smile.gif
