Does anyone have a solution to getting true purple fondant? Everytime I try to color fondant purple, it turns blue by the morning I use the Americolor gel colors....any ideas?
Chefmaster has no-fade purple and no-fade red.
If you look at my purple hatbox cake, the beads were done by mixing red and blue wilton gel colors, they faded to blue by the second day. The cake itself was done with chefmaster no-fade. You can see the difference.
Massa has just come out with a new Amethyst fondant that doesn't fade. Beautiful color.
The ChefMaster no-fade purple works very well.
I recently splurged and bought some Satin Ice pre-made purple. It's a beautiful shade of regal purple and I've seen no evidence of it fading on the cookies I made.
Another option is using powdered, pure colors, like Crystal Colors (sugarpaste.com). They won't fade when mixed with buttercream, fondant, gum paste, etc.
Keep it out of the light. Light, especialy flourescent fades purple quickly.
Thank you soo much! You guys are the best! I have a cake to make and they requested blue and purple...I was just worried it would turn all blue. Thanks again
Great post! I have found that I get the color purple I like and it darkens over night!
