I'm going to make a football themed cookie bouquet (which will be my first one) in a week or so. The school's colors are maroon and white. I'm going to use MMF for the helmets and use maroon royal icing for the details. I'm stumped about how to make maroon, though. Help!

Maroon = Burgandy and Red Red

I use the Wilton Color Chart a lot.

Good luck!
