Does anyone have any suggestions on how to darken Wilton's violet to a deeper purple? I've added so much violet but it is still not dark enough.
Thank you.

I add a small amount of black - if you do it gradually you will see the colour darken.

Good luck

I will give that a try. Thanks.

Next time, you could start with chocolate icing, then you won't have to add so much, as the color will darken more quickly.
