Ok, I'm doing a nativity cake set up for a Christmas party in December. To get the number of servings I will need I am doing a full sheet cake carved into a book shape that will be brown(to resemble leather), two twelve inch rounds, one for the wise men(which I would like to do in a deep cranberry color), and one for the shepherds(which I would like to do in a dark, hunter or emerald green) and an eight inch round for the angel (which I would like to do in a deep navy or sapphire blue). In the past I have always used americolors and wanted to know if anyone had any tips for getting these deep colors (think jewel tones) other than using chocolate icing. Any suggestions? icon_biggrin.gif

LOTs of color and don't forget that the colors will deepen after several hours, or overnight.
