I have to make a yankee cake and I dont know how to make navy blue. Please help me.
Americolor has a paste color called Navy Blue, so that is what I use if I need navy.
I have found that if you color your fondant grey first, you use less color when heading toward a deeper look (in your case blue). Good luck!
just make sure if you are doing more than a small batch to get the big bottle of navy blue, not the itty bitty one
I don't have a navy blue colour but I might colour mine blue then tint very carefully with toothpick dips of black to darken. Slow & steady till I had the right shade. Also, are you using MMF? If you are, then I find it very helpful to colour the marshmallows while they're still soupy. You may already be doing this but I thought I'd mention it anyway. HTH!
I just had to make navy blue fondant, and all I have are the Wilton colors. I used quite a bit of royal blue, then just a touch of black, and it came out perfectly.
Oh super!! That's the Wilton colour I was envisioning myself! It is the darkest blue I have too. So glad it worked out for you. Have you got pics of the finished cake? I'd love to see it when it's done.
