I have a cake to do in October and the flower decorations are Cala Lillies and the color is a difficult color to replicate.

Anyone have any ideas on how to replicate this color?

Well, red-blue-yellow=black. I would say use red-blue-yellow with a little less yellow to get the more purple color. (since red-blue=purple)

Hmmm, that's tough. Maybe burgundy plus a little violet? Or red and a little black and some violet?

I have used CHefmaster Violet as the base. Would need some black to darken it.
And then some red deep red to brighten it.
