I need to do a University of Kentucky cake. What color do I need to use to get this deep UK blue?
I really like this cake and it's a perfect color. Please help.

Are you using fondant or buttercream?
Did you mean to attach a picture or a link to a picture?
Since the blue of the UK Wildcats is not really DARK blue, Royal Blue should work for you. I don't think it is even as dark as Royal Blue... you may want to check first.
Just remember, it does darken a bit on it's own, so when ou think it's almost there, cover it and let sit for a while and then go back and look at it. I did that when I had to make Navy Blue and thought I would never get it dark enough.
i have to make a uk wedding cake and i am using americolors royal blue in MMF. It is a very close match.
I have made two cakes with UK logos. The first was fondant. I ordered royal blue fondant from Satin Ice. It was more of a teal color, which surprised me. I added purple to it and got a nice royal blue.
On the second cake, I used buttercream (FBCT). I used the Americolor royal blue. It takes quite a bit of color, and if you let it sit overnight, it gets more blue/vibrant.
Another idea if you're in a pinch. If I only needed a little royal blue, I have bought those Wilton tubes of decorator icing. Their color is so strong that you can mix it with buttercream and not lose the vibrancy.
HTH. Be sure to post pix.
Yep Royal Blue makes it perfectly. Go CATS!!!!
