I did a purple ball cap and I used a mix of Americolor's purple with a touch of violet. You can see it in my photos.

I answered this yesterday and it's not showing up! Oh well. I actually used a stainless steel bowl and a 6" round. I used the cake trimmings to make a mound of cake to round off the top of the bowl. I've used that bowl for a teapot cake, soccer ball cake, Barbie dress, and a pottery bowl cake! It's the perfect size for about a 10-12 serving cake. Beats having to buy a new pan!

If you only have Wilton's violet, use it. You don't need that much and it will work fine.

Great job! It looks really good. It's after the fact, but the next time you get an image like that, just cut out as much of the background as you can, getting as close to the actual image as possible. The darker background wouldn't have been as noticeable. Just an FYI for next time!
But you did a super job on this regardless! Congrats! thumbs_up.gif

thank you soo much for the tip.. i was actually thinking of cutting closer but i was soo scared i would break the edible image since its soo delicate !!! do you have any tip on how to successfully peel the image off without damaging it ?

You mean peel the image off the cake? No way would I do that now if that's what you mean! But before you put it on, you could use an exacto to cut around it.

Place it in the freezer for a couple of minutes it makes it easier to peel.
