I have to make a 3 tiered graduation cake at the end of this month & one of the 3 colors is burgandy. YIKES!!! I'm trying to stay away from using fondant to achieve the color but I am absolutely terrified of the icing tasting horrible. Any suggestions or recommendations will be GREATLY appreciated!
Wilton has a chart for mixing colors. Good luck. It's a very frustrating color!
I usually start with coloring it pink, then add some purple & a tiny bit of black. Hope this helps!
I am so sorry it took me so long to respond to your answers but my computer went down. I do want to thank u both soooo much for replying to my question!!!! Both of your suggestions are a BIG help!!! I'm gonna try both ways. Thanks again for your help! It's greatly appreciated! : )
AmeriColor & Wilton have the color burgundy....so try to just buy the burgundy and save yourself some headaches
Also, if you are buying Fondant t, Duffs buttercream fondant in red mixed with his purple fondant turns a beautiful shade of burgundy. You can see in my recent photo of the robot graduation cake. Good luck!
Thank you all again for all your suggestions! You have been such a big help! Wish me luck!!! lol
Red + Black makes burgandy.... add the black a very little at t time until you get your color, if you want more a purplish burgandy add a teeny tiny bit of blue!
I just did a grad cake with burgandy. I used Americolor Burgandy, then added more red and a touch of black. That seemed to do the trick! GL
