I am doing a cake next week that will have purple mff.. I know purple is a tough color to get right. Anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking grape koolaide or jello but I have never added that to mff. Thank you!
I had to get a deep purple for a cake I had several months ago. I use Americolor purple and it was fine. I mixed the color and fondant about 2 weeks before I needed. That way if it did fade, I had plenty of time to add extra color.
Keep the fondant (or buttercream) out of the sun. The sun fades the color insanely fast.
For purple I almost always use chefmaster fadeproof purple.
While making the MMF I added a whole small jar of Wilton purple before adding the PS. This worked well for me. I now use Americolor because I like it better.
