I have a 25th wedding anniversary cake due at the end of the month and I need to make burgundy/wine colored fondant-gumpaste flowers? What are the best colors to use for this? Should I start with red, black or chocolate fondant. I know Fondarific has a chocolate cherry fondant but it is more of a reddish brown. Any ideas?
Hi, I think you should start withe red. Check out the Decorators color wheel at www.sugarcraft.com
On home page, scroll down to Colorings, click then select Color Chart from menu side bar. HTH
Ok, first start with chocolate and add red. Now if you don''t want chocolate flavor then I would go with brown and red. HTH
wilton has a color chart too, but they also sell burgundy color.
this is the color that wilton gave for fondant... BURGUNDY 2 1/2 in. neon pink + 3/4 in. natural black
Chocopan use to match fondant to sherwin-williams (sp?) paint colors.... That's what I did when I needed a deep-burgundy color for a cake... Or do you have an airbrush? Mix the gumpaste as close as you can and then airbursh to get an exact match...
