I am guessing this can also be Navy. I was wondering if you all could tell me what YOU have used in your experiences to make this specific color, and how well it turned out. Thanks!

I just made a Notre Dame logo cake and needed to achive a dark navy color in fondant. I used Americolor gel color in Navy and had no problem easily achieving a nice dark navy blue. Hope that helps! icon_smile.gif

I just did a wedding cake in Midnight Blue. I used the Wilton Navy Blue gel color and did it in phases. I colored it to a medium blue, then let it rest. I added more color, then let it rest. I had a color chip handy to compare to and was able to hit the color spot on by doing it this way.

What about fondant? I am having trouble getting my fondant to be navy/midnight.
