I have a bride that wants a deep purple/plum colored fondant. She gave me a ribbon sample for the color. I'm not sure how to achieve this color. I have Americolor's Regal Purple and was thinking of adding some black to it. Am I on the right track? Anyone else out there made this color? I need to do 350 tiny flowers for the cupcake tops and two layers of a 4-tier cake in this color. Please help!!
Really? Nobody? I NEED HELP!!!!
Actual your mix will be best with red and purple. I have attached a link for a good color chart, although I think thee is one on the CC site somewhere.
I would suggest that you mix some and do some test flowers that sit out several days. Those shades of purple and bad about fading.
I don't know if anyone is interested in this, but I went down to Home Depot to ask about getting a particular color of plum. I found a paint card and asked them what the formula was. It was such an easy way to figure out my color instead of trial and error. I got it right on the first try. What a time saver! BTW, if you want a rich plum color, I used Amerigel colors and started with Regal Purple, then added Burgandy. It's perfect and beautiful!
Show us the colour! Is it similar to my castle cake in my photos perhaps? That's a plum I think.. I achieved it using red and purple...took a load of colour!
Can you show us a picture of what you used the plum color on and what the home depot formula was?
