Can anybody help me with making burgundy fondant? I started with white MMF, then added Americolor burgundy, and it turned purple-lavender color, not burgundy at all.

This is for a wedding on Saturday, and now I am freaking out. I don't think there is enough time to order anything. I tried adding black, it just went deeper purple. Please help!

Add red, that should do it.
